USW Hurricane Harvey Victims Need Our Help


Our sisters and brothers in USW District 13 are once again in the throes of a natural disaster, this one caused by Hurricane Harvey. Although the full extent of the storm’s disastrous effects won’t be known for weeks, we already know that members of our USW family are in crisis right now. Thousands live and work in the direct path of this hurricane and from early reports, some have already lost their homes and vehicles. In some places, entire neighborhoods are under water.  Unfortunately, with more rain expected this week, the worst still may be yet to come. We are asking for your help with donations.


At times like these, our union tries to help as much as it can, and in the coming days and weeks, we will assess the needs of our members and their families.  When our members and communities are suffering, we must do our best to serve our sisters and brothers during the most difficult times of their lives.

The need is immediate, so please treat this as urgently as possible.  The USW has set up an online fund for members to donate money directly to the United Steelworkers Charitable and Educational Fund. Every dollar raised will go to Steelworkers in crisis.

In the past, we have overcome natural disasters by standing together and supporting each other. On behalf of the entire Steelworker family, Director Ruben Garza and District 13, thank you for continuing to prove that we are strongest when we are united.
