On October 8, the Metal Trades Department, AFL-CIO, once again kicked off its Annual Conference with its Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Guide Dogs of America. Metal Trades Council members from around the country joined our corporate partners, union affiliates, and friends for a fun day at the beautiful Desert Pines Golf Club in Las Vegas.

Tournament participants were greeted by some of the Guide Dogs of America’s puppies in training and working Guide Dogs along the course.

The Guide Dogs of America is a non-profit organization that empowers people who are blind and visually impaired to live with increased independence, confidence and mobility by providing expertly matched guide dog partners. Their services are provided free of charge and available to people within the U.S. and Canada.

Thank you to all of our participants and sponsors for helping the Department put on such a successful charity event, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Resources Available to Affected Member in the Pacific Northwest & California

Dozens of historic deadly wildfires continue to consume millions of acres in the west, especially in California, Oregon and Washington where in some cases entire towns have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes.

Most evacuees have had to leave quickly with little advance notice, taking what few belongings they could. Thousands of homes and businesses have been incinerated. Weather conditions are improving, but the fire danger isn’t over. Wildfires are also burning in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana.

The Metal Trades Department has compiled a list of resources for our members and employment partners. If you need additional assistance, contact your MTD General Representative.
