According to Local 1-2 veteran and UWUA Executive Board Member-At-Large Darryl Taylor, “Beyond Veterans Day, we must think about how we treat our veterans every day of the year. It's about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they've earned when they come home.”
That year-round commitment to veterans and their families is why delegates to our 32nd Constitutional Convention passed a resolution in support of the Power for America and the Utility Workers Military Assistance Program (also known as P4A and UMAP). These programs help ensure that veterans have the training and support necessary to continue to serve their communities in critical utility worker roles that provide union wages and benefits.
