From United Steel Workers:

QUEBEC CITY – The Steelworkers Humanity Fund is contributing $5,000 to a campaign supporting the families of victims of Sunday’s deadly attack at a Quebec City mosque, the Centre culturel islamique de Québec.

“Steelworkers stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Muslim community. We share in their grief and their anguish and we will remain steadfast in our support in their time of need,” said Ken Neumann, Steelworkers Humanity Fund President and National Director of the United Steelworkers (USW).

“As Quebecers we reaffirm our shared values of humanism, respect and generosity,” said Alain Croteau, USW Quebec Director. “It is important for us to support the families and the victims of this senseless act of violence and hate.”

Responding to a call from the City of Quebec, the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is making its $5,000 contribution to the Centre multiethnique de Québec, a registered charity that is raising funds for the families of the Quebec City shooting’s victims.

The Steelworkers Humanity Fund is a registered charitable organization that contributes to development projects and emergency aid in developing countries, as well as supporting Canadian communities in crisis. United Steelworkers members contribute to the fund through clauses negotiated into collective agreements. In some cases employers make matching contributions to the fund.
