The Industry Advancement Fund, established by Roofers Local No. 2 and the Signatory Roofing Contractors, recently made a cash donation to the United Way of Greater St. Louis, St. Louis Labor Council division. The Organized Labor/United Way Partnership provides union members with assistance in times of need.
Such resources include help with utilities, food and counseling. The St. Louis Labor Council is grateful for the donation, says John Clark, a member of IBEW and liaison for the United Way to the Labor Council.
“This partnership provides union members with the guidance and referral to community resources they are eligible to receive,” he adds. “With the support we receive, we are able to help our members when called upon. We are very appreciative.”
