Nineteen plumbers, pipefitters, HVAC techs and office employees of MCAA member Graco Mechanical were victimized by Hurricane Harvey. Each received $1,500, thanks to the MCAA Disaster Relief Fund and the UA Charitable Trust. Thanks to the incredible generosity of MCAA's affiliated associations, the UA’s Local Unions, MCAA’s contractor, manufacturer and supplier members and many individual donors for making this possible. We should ALL be proud of the good work we are doing to help our UA and MCAA family members whose lives have been turned upside down by Harvey. We are, together, indeed MCAA&UA STRONG!…
The MCAA and the UA have teamed up to provide additional financial relief to 357 field and office employees of our South Texas members who were victimized by Hurricane Harvey. Each employee is receiving a $500 relief check, with half coming from the MCAA Disaster Relief Fund and half from the UA's Charitable Trust. This is in addition to the $1,000 relief check each employee already received from MCAA's Disaster Relief Fund. Here’s the reaction of one of CFI Mechanical’s employees: “Chuck, once again I am floored by the generosity of others. Today I received a second check for disaster aide from the MCAA along with the UA Charitable Trust. Together with their members, they raised more to assist flood victims. This will help while waiting for the insurance company to decide what might or might not be covered. I have never been more proud to be a plumber for a union contractor that is so active in MCAA. Thank you again for your generosity!”…
