On August 28th, one of our Local I-60 brothers endured the loss of two expectant children. Joseph LaBelle and his wife Jennifer were expecting twins though Jennifer suffered from a spontaneous placental abruption which put her into pre-term labor.

Unfortunately, due to the gestational age there was nothing that could have been done to have prevented the tragic outcome. This unexpected loss has resulted in a loss of hours and wages for both Jennifer and Joseph. We are seeking support in the form of PTO donations to cover some of Joe’s lost work time while he grieves with his wife and their two other children on an unpaid leave of absence.

Any assistance in this endeavor that you can provide no matter the size will be greatly appreciated by Joe and his family.

The PTO donation form can be downloaded here — just complete it and send it to HR or a Union Officer.
