As our members are painfully aware, we have lost brothers and sisters at our various worksites over the years. Fathers/Mothers, Sons/Daughters, friends, coworkers... we may have interacted with them in different ways, but the losses are felt equally by us all.

In memory of our "Fallen Workers", a memorial scholarship/grant program was instituted in 1998.
Since them, we have awarded a total of $891,350.00 in scholarships and grants to deserving young adults as they work to improve themselves through additional schooling. For year 2018, we gave away to total of 19 grants and 12 scholarships worth $61,500.00.
