Local 1188 establishes tornado relief fund

oklahoma_tornadoLocal 1188 at Oklahoma City, Okla., has established a relief fund to assist their brothers and sisters who have been affected by May’s tornado in Moore, Okla.

“Several members of Local 1188 and Local 1042 in Oklahoma City have had their homes damaged or completely destroyed. There were also other brothers and sisters of other unions that had damage. We would like to assist our railroad family as much as possible and get their lives back together. All proceeds will go directly to members,” said Secretary & Treasurer Steve Freeman.

Donations may be made to “UTU Local 1188 Tornado Relief” at Arvest Banks or sent to Arvest Bank, 9350 S. Western Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73139.
