Help ATU members impacted by wildfires in U.S. Western States and Hurricane Sally

Mother Nature recently unleashed her wrath with destructive and dangerous wildfires in the U.S. western states and Hurricane Sally on the Gulf Coast. California, Oregon and Washington State are amongst the worst hit by the wildfires in Western states. Alabama and Florida took the brunt of Hurricane Sally. Homes and property have been destroyed in many communities where ATU members work and live.

When a crisis hits, ATU members do what they do every day on the job and in their communities.  They don’t ask questions about when, where and how. They just help out.

From Hurricane Sandy, the Oklahoma tornadoes, flooding in Alberta, the Colorado fires and other disasters, our members have always supported our brothers and sisters in dire need and now it’s time we show our support again.

We call on all ATU Locals and members to help your brothers and sisters impacted by these wildfires by contributing to the ATU Disaster Relief Fund. Donations can be made online here or by mailing a check to:
