Brothers & Sisters,
Members of the TWU Veterans Committee delivered 2 vans loaded with pillows, blankets, winter jackets, snacks and toiletries to assist Beacon House in Bay Shore, NY in their mission to assist our Homeless and Transient Veterans.
The pictures below are Veterans of the TWU membership who led the way in the mission! Local 501 is proud of the TWU Veterans Committee and proud of our TWU 501 Veterans and Local 501 Veteran Coordinators assistance – Executive Board Member Chris Kiernan and Shop Steward/Local 501 Veterans Committee Coordinator Brian Galarza.
On Behalf of the TWU Local 501 Executive Board!

Good morning all,
I’ve attached the Facebook and Twitter report for the first full week of the campaign. I’m happy to tell you all that the campaign is doing very well, but we’ve got to do much more to keep it going or we’ll lose momentum and it will die.
Currently the petition has 7300 names on it, but we need that number much much higher! We have people from around the world signing the petition from places like Saudi Arabia, Guam, Africa and of course all over the U.S. Sadly, many of our own members and Union reps haven’t signed it. If your board members and stewards haven’t signed it they need to sign and share it asap.
There has been a video added to the petition to replace the static image. PLEASE share this link with everyone! Your members, labor councils, other Unions in your area, etc… We need everyone to see and sign it… Change.org Petition Page
