We are sure all of you have seen the images of destruction and devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy this past week.
Our members and their loved ones in New Jersey and in New York City have borne the brunt of this terrible storm. Thank goodness it appears we did not lose any members’ lives.
Local 54 in Atlantic City and our locals in and around the New York City will have members out of work for some time and are facing tremendous hardship.
Locals 54, 6 and 100 are assessing the needs and challenges in their areas.
Our Union can and must assist.
We have established a fund that can receive contributions from our Locals and Joint Boards. We urge you to make a contribution today by making out a check payable to the “UNITE HERE Relief Fund”:
UNITE HERE Relief Fund
275 7th Avenue
New York, NY 10001
UNITE HERE Locals in five Northern California cities–Monterey, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, and Oakland–have pledged to raise $50,000 from the region. Local 483 has raised $5,000 and hopes to match that with more contributions from our members and supporters.
