Members continue helping front-line workers stay fueled and protected

Across the United States and Canada, USW members continue supporting health care workers by ensuring they are fueled and protected in their fight against Covid-19.

In Connecticut, USW Locals 12160, 12000, 134L and 859-4, with the help of several others, recently collected donations to provide lunch through Amanda's Deli and Grill for the doctors and nurses at Yale New Haven Health, who work on the Covid-19 floor. The food even arrived with custom USW Thank You tags.

In Northwest Ohio, USW Local 1-346 also did their part keeping hospital workers’ stomachs full. So far, they have donated more than 50 pizzas and trays of macaroni to front-line health care workers.

Local 318 out of Edison, N.J., stepped up to the plate, as well, and delivered a bundle of PPE donations from companies Mauser and Bristol Myers Squibb to USW nurses at Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick and Somerset.

In District 11, several USW employers, including WestRock (Local 264), Flint Hills Refinery (Local 662), and Conwed Plastics (Local 1259), rallied to provide much-needed hand sanitizer to USW-represented long-term care facilities. The nursing homes included Chisholm Health Center, Ecumen Lakeshore, Lake Superior Community Health Center, Range Center, Inc., Guardian Angels Health and Rehabilitation Center, and Monarch Waterview Pines.

These donations will not only help keep health care workers and their families safe but also help protect patients and residents in these facilities, making this a true community effort.
