Affected by Hurricane Sandy? Apply for the UFCW Relief Fund ASAP


The following is a statement issued by United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) International Union President Joseph Hansen: “Inspired by President Obama’s declaration that we will get through this together, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union has established a Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund to provide vital financial support for the nearly 200,000 UFCW members living in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and surrounding areas."

Additional statement from UFCW Region 1: "The UFCW & RWDSU have collected donations to support our sisters and brothers who have suffered devastating losses as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  The losses suffering have been so extensive that we want to help as many people as we can, understanding that we cannot even come close to making them whole.  Nonetheless, we want to assist the extent that we can. 

For members (at the time of the storm) who would like to apply for assistance, they should fill out the form and return it by fax to (877) 440-5009 as soon as possible." 

Please fill out the application immediately by downloading it here.   If you do not have access to a fax machine please contact Adam Obernauer at 800-214-1341 or email immediately.
