Local donates to "Threads of Life"


Threads of Life, bringing hope and healing

In honour of the National Day of Mourning and on behalf of its members, Unifor Local 975 has made a donation to the Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support, known as "Threads of Life", a Canadian registered charity dedicated to supporting families after a workplace fatality, life-altering injury, or occupational disease.

Through their network of family members and corporate partners, Threads of Life believes traumatic workplace injuries, occupational diseases, and deaths are preventable.  Their mission, vision, and values capture what they do and aim to achieve.  They are guided by a board of directors comprised of family members affected by workplace tragedy and experts from Canada‚Äôs workplace health and safety community.  Much of their work is accomplished by volunteers, and we document our progress in annual reports.

Each worker and family member who has been affected by a workplace tragedy is a thread in the quilt of life.
