Painters and Allied Trades establishes disaster relief fund


The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) has established a Finishing Industries Disaster Relief Fund to assist members who are facing serious financial need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and give members a platform to lend a helping hand to one another during the global health and economic crisis.

“The IUPAT is constantly monitoring the situation to provide our members with the most up-to-date information and resources to help,” the International said in a statement.

“We have suspended dues, approved Annuity Fund withdrawals, and established call centers to field members’ questions and connect them with resources. Now, we all must support our fellow union members because our union sticks together in times of need. That’s what unions are for.”
