Since January RankandFile.ca has raised $3018! This means we’re nearly half way to our new goal of reaching $6660 in donations before the end of summer.
R&F.ca is committed to building a network of rank-and-file labour activists across the country. Through facilitating the sharing of stories, experiences, debate, and analysis around our collective struggles, we foster exchanges that we believe strengthen our movement and build links of solidarity.
We provide coverage of strikes, negotiations, legislative developments, international solidarity efforts, economic policy, and the victories in between. We are committed to publishing well-researched, timely, and thought-provoking pieces that can critically inform the work of the labour movement.
As we build our network of contributors and readers, we are able to promote campaigns that defend workers’ rights, such as Save Canada Post, or USW’s Bottles Not Cans. Our weekly newsletter often features solidarity appeals.
It is because of the generous support from our supporters that we have been able to reach some remarkable milestones. This year, R&F.ca has consistently reached 10,000 unique visits to the site per month. In January, we hired our first part-time writer/organizer.
What can we do with more money?
To continue to grow, we need further support. New donations will help us:
- establish a $3000 writers fund
- Hire new writers/organizers
- raise $2000 to hire two new writer/organizers that will help us increase our geographical reach and representation
- produce print resources for distribution in workplaces and at public events
- alleviate the costs associated with web hosting for RankandFile.ca
