Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

Local 1224 Crew Members,

Nearly 100 pilots represented by Teamsters Local 1224 currently reside in or near the area affected by Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flood. This event is a true tragedy and our thoughts are with everyone concerned, especially our brothers and sisters who have been in Harvey’s path. Relief efforts are just beginning, but here is some initial information for those who have been affected, as well as ways others can help.

Members affected by Hurricane Harvey may be eligible for assistance from the Teamsters Disaster Relief Fund.



If you reside in one of the following counties, you may be eligible for assistance: Aransas, Bee, Brazoria, Calhoun, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Harris, Jackson, Kleberg, Liberty, Matagorda, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, Victoria and Wharton. Forms must be returned to the Teamsters Disaster Relief Fund by November 15, 2017. Because verification by the Local Union is required first, members should allow additional time for processing.
