During these tough times, we’re stepping up to support our communities. In a matter of few weeks, Local 17 members converted the Rhode Island Convention Center from the state’s largest event venue into a COVID-19 field hospital.

The now-complete triage center provides 600 additional beds.

Our members are taking on similar efforts all across New England — and we’re proud to do our part so everyone gets the care they need. Thanks to all our members who answered the call on this important project.
