Update on Conductor Garcia's House Fire

Brothers and Sisters,

(January 26) I have been in touch with the Garcia family, who lost their home in a devastating fire last weekend in Poughkeepsie.

Conductor Justin Garcia expressed his gratitude to me for all of the warm messages and donations they have received from their TWU Local 100 Brothers and Sisters. He wanted me to share this message with you: “Please tell everyone we are forever grateful.”

Mrs. Garcia as well expressed her gratitude to us. They are definitely feeling the love from their extended family. It’s a very traumatic experience but, thank God they are alive and will recover. Sadly they lost two of their pets.

This is Union power. We are here to support one another at all times.

In solidarity,
