IBEW Unity Fund to Help Sandy Victims
December 10, 2012
More than 70,000 IBEW members across the Northeast live in Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster zones. Many are facing tens of thousands of dollars in damage caused by Hurricane Sandy and the resulting flooding. Some are without a home all together.
That’s why the IBEW is tapping its Unity Fund – first set up last year to help working families stand up against anti-worker attacks in Wisconsin and Ohio – to help members rebuild their homes and lives.
Says International President Edwin D. Hill:
Third District International Representative Wyatt Earp, who is working to identify members affected throughout New Jersey, says he’s met many members who are facing the holidays without a home.
Earp says in addition to raising funds and identifying members in need, local unions and signatory contractors have teamed up to set up emergency house repair hotlines for members.
