Member Benefits

The BAC Disaster Relief Fund

Since it was established in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina, the BAC Disaster Relief Fund has been a welcome source of sustenance for members affected by natural or other disasters. The program is funded through the personal contributions of the IU Executive Board, Local Union/ADC officers, members, signatory contractors, and through IU and Local Union grants.

In light of the damage caused by Hurricane/Tropical Cyclone Sandy, IU President James Boland wants to remind members that the Fund exists "to lend a helping hand to our Brothers and Sisters in need, so please be sure to alert your Local or ADC if you have suffered as a result of the recent storm." At this time, however, if communications with your BAC Local/ADC in some of the hardest hit areas prove difficult, please feel free to connect with the International Union by phone or email (1.888.880.8222 or, providing your name, IU member number, a cell phone or email address, and your circumstances, and we'll do everything possible to relay that information to your Local/ADC officers.

To Request Assistance

To request assistance from the Fund, please contact your Local Union or Administrative District Council, which will work with the International Union to provide assistance checks to members in need as soon as possible.

If you have further questions, please contact the International's toll-free number at 1.888.880.8222.
