Hurricane Ida’s strength of historical proportion struck relentlessly and left a path of destruction that impacted the lives of many, including IAM members.

Please consider donating to the IAM Disaster Relief Fund.

The storm has passed, and the time is now to help Machinists Union members that were caught in the wrath of Ida. The IAM is doing everything possible to assist our members recovering from this catastrophic event. Every dollar donated to the IAM Disaster Relief Fund goes directly to IAM members and their families in need.
