Three OPEIU Nurse Member Volunteers Join Flight to Puerto Rico Provide Necessary Skilled Labor in Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts
(NEWARK, N.J., October 4, 2017) – Today, three Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) nurse members joined more than 300 working men and women who volunteered to travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico from Newark, N.J. to help with Hurricane Maria’s relief efforts.

The flight – a Boeing 777-300ER, which was volunteered by United Airlines for a business and labor partnership – was a response to the urgent need for highly skilled workers to come to Puerto Rico to assist with the rebuilding effort and help people in need of medical and humanitarian assistance.

OPEIU members joined other members from, the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW), and United Airlines who teamed up to fly the more than 300 first responders and skilled volunteers -- including nurses, doctors, firefighters, electricians, engineers, carpenters and truck drivers -- to help with relief efforts and the rebuilding of Puerto Rico.
