That’s why LINECO provides IBEW linemen with the Member Assistance Program (MAP).

 

MAP offers you six free consultations (per specific issue) with a professional, should you need to discuss challenges related to: 

 

  •       Family and/or personal matters

  •       Marital, child-care, or elder-care support
  •       Stress/anxiety

The Texas AFL-CIO has been in close contact with our Central Labor Councils and local affiliates that are experiencing the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.
