NATCA's four-part poster campaign celebrating NATCAvism continues this week, and the theme is your responsibility in the success of our Union: Staying connected to information sources available to you helps you fulfill this important duty.
NATCA leadership works tirelessly tackle key issues and activities affecting the workers our Union represents, and they work just as hard to keep members updated on these issues. Read NATCA leadership updates in your inbox, on social media, and on NATCA.org.
If you're reading this, you're following NATCA social media - a great way to stay connected! Download the NATCA app as well for additional tools and resources.
Your NATCA communications team collects news from across the NAS that impacts you and your brothers & sisters. Read the NATCA Insider in your inbox or on NATCA.org for these updates.
Your regional and local NATCA leaders also share updates. Check with your local leadership about how you can be best tapped in to get information from those working the issues closest to you.
Please give to the NATCA Disaster Relief Fund: Including all three recent hurricanes, the NATCA Disaster Relief Fund has assisted nearly 150 members with funds totaling just over $100,000. More than 20 of those members lost their homes. Approximately $30,000 was used for supplies. Thank you to everyone who has donated so generously to the Fund.
The need remains great, however, especially in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas. In this video, shot and produced by San Juan Tower Facility Representative Kyrandgel Rios, you can get a sense of the scale of the disaster as experienced by our members in Puerto Rico before, during, and after Hurricane Maria hit. We ask for your continued support.
NATCA established a disaster relief fund in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. It provides assistance to our members who have experienced catastrophic losses of property and helps provide a lifeline during those most desperate times. Due to the generosity of our membership, our fund has continued to grow after that horrific storm, and has allowed NATCA members to help those affected after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita (2005), Ike (2008), and Matthew (2016).
Please consider a donation to assist our brothers and sisters who have been ravaged by these recent terrible storms. You can also send a check to: NATCA National Office; ATTN: Disaster Relief Fund, 1325 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., 2005.
To our members in the affected areas: We are with you in solidarity and are here to help in any way we can.
