Oklahoma Tragedy

Teamsters are inundating Oklahoma locals with offers to help them recover from one of the most violent tornadoes in history. The twister that ripped through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore killed at least 24 people and damaged as many as 13,000 homes in a 17-mile swath.

Though the damage hasn't been fully assessed yet, we do know one of our brothers, a UPS package driver, lost his wife in the violent storm. His 8-year-old son is in intensive care with multiple injuries. At least a dozen Teamster homes were leveled by the violent storm.

The Teamsters Disaster Relief Fund was established to help members and their families in need. If you would like to make a donation, click here.
