Time short for sick 9/11 responders to benefit from fund

As we honor their sacrifices, we urge injured and ill responders and survivors and the loved ones of those who lost their lives to register for the Victim Compensatiom Fund by Oct. 3rd. "Labor representatives and elected officials all worked hard to pass the [Zadroga] law. Now we must ensure that those whose lives were forever changed by 9/11 don't miss their chance for much-needed assistance." Read NYS AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento's column in amNY.

Anyone who worked in NYC during the 9/11 rebuilding and recovery or demolition and HAS NOT signed up for WTC monitering program should do so ASAP! You do not have to go to Manhattan, you an go for an exam in Happauge. Please call the Union office if you have any questions. (516) 420-1104
