Just days after Florence slammed into the North Carolina coast, the monstrous storm’s havoc continues to spread across much of the eastern United States. With a toll of more than 30 lives lost and floodwaters rising, it will take months to assess the brunt of its impact.

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.
