Union Brothers and Sisters help each other 


The recent chemical spill in Southern WV affected thousands of people from 8 different counties, when it was realized that the crisis had affected members of our local69 (Cornwell, Cheylan, and Madison City plant) a call to action was needed and the Union’s Executive Board responded. After a unanimous vote to buy water for the affected employee’s, Willard Swiger and Kris Wagner purchased 55 cases of water as well as cases of sanitary wipes and drove the 4 hour trip to deliver the needed supplies. “It was just one Union member helping another Union member I was glad to be part of it” Willard Swiger Hope Region Director. “I am proud of our Executive Boards swift action to help” Craig Bradford President.
