You Can Help IAM Hurricane Relief

September 19, 2017 Admin 0

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.

Help fellow Fighting Machinists affected by these disasters by donating to the IAM Disaster Relief FundRead More...
