UFA and UFOA Requesting Support in Washington, DC for VCF Permanent Authorization

UFANYC.org - June 03, 2019

The UFA and UFOA Executive Boards are asking for members to join us on Tuesday June 11 in our Nation's Capital. We will be there calling on Congress to enact the Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act (H.R.1327/S.546) sponsored by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

We will be providing transportation for both UFA and UFOA members leaving from Randall's Island at 5:00 AM Sharp. Due to limited space inside the Committees Chambers we are asking that any members contact their respected Unions. UFA Members can call the Office and speak to Nellie Featherstone at (646) 839-6506. UFOA members can call the Office at (212) 293-9300 and ask for Liam Guilfoyle.
