OPEIU Members Affected by Recent Disasters Need Your Help

OPEIU members are always there to help our sisters and brothers in need, from the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina in 2005, Sandy in 2012 and Harvey, Irma and Maria last year, we are proud that OPEIU members came forward and did all they could to help those affected.

Now it is our sisters and brothers in the Carolinas and Virginia who need our help. Hurricane Florence has unleashed monumental destruction in both coastal and inland areas. The resulting downpours and surging rivers have caused untold damage in affected areas.

OPEIU members in Boston also have experienced property loss following the gas explosions of a few weeks ago. And some of our California sisters and brothers have seen loss due to recent wildfires.

You’ve been extremely generous in the past, and we know we can count on you again.

And now your contribution will go even further! OPEIU is making an initial contribution of $10,000 to the OPEIU Relief Fund and will match dollar for dollar all member and local union contributions, up to an additional $50,000.

This means your contribution will be doubled and will do even more to help our sisters and brothers in need.

Checks can be sent to:
