  1. Union workers are first responders and heroes during the disaster but many don’t realize organized labor’s role in the recovery phase. Members and volunteers continue to work through Long Term Recovery Organizations in affected communities as well as in the rebuild of infrastructure. Looking forward to the exhibit.

  2. Shortly after the storm, the Sheet Metal Workers Local 83, Albany N.Y. Executive Board voted to send $5,000.00 dollars to aid members in our sister locals affected by Superstorm Sandy.This money was earmarked to address their immediate needs. We are a small local of about 400 members.
