FINANCIAL RELIEF AVAILABLE FOR IATSE MEMBERS AFFECTED BY UTAH EARTHQUAKE

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

A 5.7 magnitude earthquake shook Utah's Salt Lake City area Wednesday morning and was felt by an estimated 2.73 million people. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that it was the largest earthqake in the area since 1992. 

Financial relief is available for affected IATSE members through the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation. IATSE members in need of assistance should submit a written request to their local union. Local unions will then forward any requests to the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation for review by the Foundation’s trustees.

We also encourage IATSE members who are not directly affected to donate to the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation. Money from the Foundation helps pay for shelter, food, clothing, and other necessities to help our affected IATSE sisters and brothers get through this difficult time.

Checks should be made payable to the “Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation” and mailed to:

The Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation c/o IATSE
