Disaster Aid Fund

The SIU established the Seafarers Disaster Aid Fund to assist our members and retirees living in areas affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters. In the wake of a disaster, every bit of aid helps, and members who have incurred lost or damaged property shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to the union’s disaster relief fund for assistance. This also extends to the members of affiliates of the SIU. Please note that the fund cannot accept donations from contracted employers.
