USW Local 9508 Helps Build a Home For Good Cause

Members of the United Steelworkers Local 9508 have been on the picket line now for over 15 months.

While manning the lines, they have also been contributing to the community.

Darren Cove is the President of the United Steelworkers Local 9508.

He says their members have been constructing a home for a Happy Valley-Goose Bay family in need.

A tragic fire claimed the family’s home in February.

The fire also claimed the life of a 21-year-old woman.

Construction on the home began this fall.

Cove says the work is progressing well.

They now have most of the exterior work completed on the home.

He says at any given time, there are 12 members lending their hand to the effort.

The Local 9508 has also been carrying out fund raising efforts to help pay for the needed materials.

Cove adds that the members are more than happy to lend their hand to such a deserving cause.
