  • We Support Veterans
    Jan 26, 2023

    Sisters and Brothers,

    Last year, the Union Veterans Council, along with our affiliates, played a critical role in the passage of the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act. This legislation ensures any veteran who was exposed to burn pits, toxins, and airborne hazards while deployed will be provided access to VA health care and benefits.

    If you're a veteran or have a veteran in your family who was exposed, click HERE to learn more about what benefits you and/or your loved ones are entitled to from the VA.

    The PACT Act will bring these changes:

    • Expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post-9/11 eras
    • Adds 20+ more presumptive conditions for burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic exposures
    • Adds more presumptive-exposure locations for Agent Orange and radiation
    • Requires VA to provide a toxic exposure screening to every Veteran enrolled in VA health care
    • Helps us improve research, staff education, and treatment related to toxic exposures

    If you’re a veteran or survivor, you can file claims now to apply for PACT Act-related benefits.

    We remain dedicated to passing legislation like the PACT to ensure that veterans receive all the benefits we earned.

    Veterans from all generations are processing the news of what is currently unfolding in Afghanistan and could be experiencing a wide range of emotions and feelings right now. From union presidents to first-year apprentices, many of these veterans are our brothers and sisters in the labor movement, and we want to support them during this time of concern.

    With more than 1 million working union veterans and countless retirees, the Union Veterans Council wants to ensure that the labor community and our veterans are educated, informed and prepared with the right resources and support to face this moment head-on.

    Let’s be clear this will not affect all veterans, but our goal is to be prepared and make sure that any union veteran or family member gets the support they need, even if it is just a check-in. 

    We have also compiled a list of resources which are accessible to veterans, veterans’ supporters and the general public. Please share widely so that everyone who needs these resources has access to them.
