Direct Impact

Welcome to the Fall/Winter 2020 Edition of Direct Impact

This year challenged working people like none other. While the UCP used COVID as cover to crush our rights and make life harder, front-line workers battled the virus head-on.

What we're confronted with. And what we’re doing for the bigger battles ahead.
