News Coverage of Tragic Death Boosts Go Fund Me for Fallen Sister Julia Roman

Local 100 has been spreading the word about our history-making member's tragic death to encourage readers to donate to the family's GoFundMe site. Stories in the New York Post and the Daily News have noted that the late Julia Roman, TEMM, was a pioneering female Elevator Escalator mechanic who came up through the ranks after being trained in a program to bring women into non-traditional jobs. TWU Local 100's apprenticeship program is doing the same thing, bringing even more women into MOW. We again urge our members to contribute to the family's GoFundMe site, and to attend our sister's services. The GoFundMe page has raised nearly $36,000 in one day. According to the family, it will be used to allow family members the time off work to stay with the infant twins.
