Member Story: "Union Brothers Supported Me During Crisis"
Bobby Mcginnis, Field Operations Inspector A with National Grid and TWU Local 101 member for twenty-six years, was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer a year and a half ago. In this video, he tells the story of how TWU Local 101 came to his aid, with more than 60 Union Brothers and Sisters donating their vacation days to him so that he could have the time to recuperate and return to work strong. But that's only half of the story: Less than a month after his final surgery, his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her fellow teachers at the UFT were inspired by the actions of Local 101 members and came together to donate to her more than 30 of their vacation days.
