Thunder Bay Injured Workers Are Grateful for Support


Herb Daniher, USW Rep in Thunder Bay, offers Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group board member, Jules Tupker, a cheque from USW members in Kapuskasing at the June 1st ceremony.

The Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group was fortunate to be offered rent-free space at the Lakehead Labour Centre for many years. Since the destruction of the labour centre, we have had shared office space with the Canadian Injured Workers Alliance. This also marks the first time that we have had to pay rent since the Injured Workers Resource Centre, which was funded for a pilot project in the 90’s, closed. Without the support of many labour unions both local and in the district, we would be unable to offer support to other injured workers and their families. We are very grateful for all the support we receive, both financially and socially.
