Your generous and compassionate support allowed MCAA in the last two weeks to provide $350,000 in financial support to 350 pipefitters, plumbers, service techs and office employees of our South Texas member companies harmed by Hurricane Harvey. Now, in conjunction with our labor partners at the UA, we will be sending each of those 350 individuals an additional relief check, for $500, with $250 of each check coming from the MCAA Disaster Relief Fund and $250 coming from the UA’s Charitable Trust. This is a great example of the UA/MCAA partnership, and what that partnership can do to benefit the less fortunate members of our UA/MCAA Family. That is why we are MCAA&UA STRONG!
