In the wake of natural disasters across the state, the Missouri AFL-CIO has created the Missouri Working Families Relief Fund to send a message of hope and solidarity to working people in need. Just this week, Missouri requested a second federal disaster declaration due to flooding and tornadoes. As always, union members are leading the relief efforts. First Responders, public employees, and working people across the state are on the front lines evacuating people to safety, tending to the injured, restoring power, and rebuilding. The Missouri Working Families Relief Fund provides union members with another avenue to be on the front lines and help working people who’ve had their lives turned upside down. The fund will provide some financial assistance to natural disaster victims to help them begin to rebuild their lives.
“As a labor movement, we know we’re strongest when we stand arm in arm. The Missouri Working Families Relief Fund creates an opportunity for union members to help other members during their time of need.” said Mike Louis, Missouri AFL-CIO President.
Members who have been affected by any of the recent flooding, tornadoes, or other catastrophes can contact their local Central Labor Council office to get assistance.
