RAILWAY UNIONS' BENEFITS
MAKE U C. LOOK SICK
- Unions and union members of the
surface and elevated railway organ
izations paid out for their sick and
disabled, for the burial, of their dead
and the relief of -distressed families
last year the sum of $119,640.17. This
is the total which will be reported in
their official paper, the Union Leader,
this week. - "J;
More money was spent by these
unions in taking care of their mem
bers and families' needing relief than
the United Charities has been able to
raise in a two months' campaign
among Chicago business men.
While the total contribution by all
millionaires and corporation magnates-
and merchants and manufac
turers to the United Charities' fund
for 1914 is hovering below $100,000,
the street railway workers raised the
past year through voluntary collec
tions for distressed members the sum
of $26,575.17. This money was all
given free-handed in nickels, dimes
and quarters (sometimes a dollar)
by conductors and motormen.
Each week the Union Leader runs
a column or two of cards and notices
from. Bill or Jack or Dan, each card
or notice saying something like this:
"I want to thank the members' of,.
Division 241 (or 360) for the $56.20
collected for me while my children
"Bill" Taber, secretary of Division
241r said: "We take care of our own
people. No investigations by charity .
organizations are needed. The fel
low workers of a distressed member
know when there is sickness or death
in a family and when they bring the
necessary fund that has been col
lected, they do it with real human
sympathy and fellowship."
