Financial Relief for IATSE Members Affected by California Wildfires

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Financial relief is available to IATSE members affected by the California fires through the Walsh/DiTolla/Spivak Foundation.
 
The wildfires that ravaged Northern California have been the deadliest in California’s history. While there is now progress in fighting these fires, there has been horrific destruction. IATSE members can request financial relief to assist with recovery.
 
Individual IATSE members needing assistance should submit a written request to their local union. The local union will then forward the request to the Foundation for review by the Foundation trustees. 
 
Our hearts go out to the California communities. We encourage IATSE members affected to request financial relief, and we thank the many firefighters, emergency responders, volunteers, and helpers in their efforts to assist people in those affected areas.
