Teamsters on strike at Davis Wire are truly grateful to dozens of individuals and organizations that have made contributions to the ONE MORE DAY fund.

These contributions have made a tremendous difference in the lives of the families of the 83 men who have been impacted by the 10-week old strike.

Every worker has a story to tell about how the fund has helped keep him on his feet.  In one case, it helped a family that was recently evicted get back into a home.  It has prevented electricity from being shut off for at least twelve families, and it has helped many more buy groceries and put food on the table.

Last week, Local 117 distributed a lump sum from the fund to all members who have been out on the picket line.  In Shop Steward Robert Bruner's words, "You could see the tension on their faces turn to relief; it put hope back in their lives."

"It's good to know that people genuinely care and are willing to give their time and money to help us in our time of need," he said. 

The fight for Teamsters at Davis Wire is far from over.  These workers continue to face tremendous financial hardship.  Many are still at risk of losing the roof over their heads because the company's billionaire owners, Michael and Emily Heisley, are concerned only about their own profits. 

The struggle continues, but today these workers thank you and all of their community supporters for your unwavering generosity, solidarity, and support.
