Memorial Fund Set Up for Killed Steelworkers

To: Local Unions in Sub District 2

From: Dave Dowling

On Thursday, April 20, 2017 two members of the United Steelworkers employed by Laclede Gas were shot to death as they worked on the streets of St. Louis. Killed was Alex Boschert, 27, and William Froelich, 52. The incident appears to be the random, violent act of an assailant who took his own life shortly after taking the lives of our brothers.

The United Steelworkers, in cooperation with the United Way, is encouraging that donations be sent to a Memorial Fund established in behalf of the families.

Donations should be sent to:

United Way of Greater St. Louis
Attn: Laclede Gas Workers Memorial Fund
P.O. Box 954281
St. Louis, Mo. 63195-4281

Sub District Local Unions are encouraged to assist the families of the slain United Steelworkers members by contributing to the Memorial Fund.

Thanks in advance to all Local Union who contribute.
