Help us reach $3,400 by July 1, 2014!
A big thanks is owed to RankandFile.ca readers and supporters who have donated nearly $900.00 to the project. We’re on our way to meeting the $3,400 goal. Help us get there with individual contributions and by asking your union local for financial support.
Here’s how we are spending the money:
- Buying buttons and other swag to promote RankandFile.ca
- Sending impoverished graduate student and RF.ca editor Dave Bush to the Labor Notes conference in Chicago
- Sending RF.ca editors to the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) conference in May
- Transportation costs to other labour union conventions in Canada, including the upcoming CLC Convention in Montreal
- Establish an Honorarium Fund that awards contributing writers
- Enable the production of print resources for distribution in workplaces and at public events
- Assist the Support Postal Workers campaign
- Alleviate the costs associated with web hosting and graphic design for RankandFile.ca
- Organize public talks and events
- Buy and maintain digital recording equipment and design software
- Provide readers with relevant and informative labour news and analysis from Canada and around the world
- Help build solidarity with workers in struggle
- Develop a coherent analysis of the labour movement
- Help build and connect a network of rank and file trade union activists
- Provide aspiring journalists and union activists with a space to develop their ideas and writing skills
Donations can be made by using our Paypal account (the button is on the top left of the page). You can also put a motion forward to your union local to make a small donation, we have attached a model RF.ca Funding letter.
