Dear Machinists Sisters and Brothers,
Over the past week, we all watched in horror as Hurricane Irma grew into a category 5 storm and made its destructive way through the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Florida, leaving behind a trail of debris and devastation.
Irma’s destruction comes on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, which has left much of Houston and the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast in peril.
These regions are home to tens of thousands of our Machinist family, and they need our help.
The Disaster Relief Fund is able to provide financial assistance to IAM members quickly, before most monetary relief efforts can react, putting money in the hands of our members when they need it most.
Each day we hear more and more amazing stories of IAM members going above and beyond to help others in their community. These everyday heroes exemplify what the Machinists Union and the labor movement is all about.
Help us give them the assistance they need in the quickness in which they deserve it.
