Description

1) Objective

The Unifor Social Justice Fund’s primary purpose is to institutionalize our ability as a union to respond to a variety of international issues through humanitarian, development and social justice assistance. Since 1990, the SJF has supported over 1,000 projects throughout the world. As a labour-based non-governmental organization, the Social Justice Fund obviously has a priority in establishing worker-to-worker and union-to union relationships internationally.

Unifor is dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families in Canada and around the world. One way we express that commitment is through our Social Justice Fund. The Unifor Social Justice Fund promotes and supports the role of trade unions and workers groups in their efforts to strengthen democracy, promote equitable development, and contribute to poverty reduction, social justice and education reform.

The Unifor Social Justice Fund is a registered charity that is governed by our Social Justice Fund Board of Directors (which includes officers of the union as well as prominent Canadians). Funds are negotiated during collective bargaining from employers, either on a cents-per-hour-per-worker basis, or as a lump sum. In this way, workers signify that social justice is a key priority and that by working collectively we can make a difference not only here in Canada but around the world.

The proposal should include:

  • background on your organization and the organization that you are working with,
  • the overall objectives of your project,
  • the time frame for your work,
  • what you hope to accomplish with this project,
  • overall budget and the amount you are requesting from us.
  • names of other groups/organizations that are funding the project (If there are any).
  • Contact person with contact information such as phone number and/or fax number, email address.
