TWU 525 Members Injured in MCO

The following is reposted from

On October 6th,  two of TWU Local 525's newest members were involved in a terrible accident at Orlando  International in Florida. The specifics of the accident are still under investigation but in the meantime, Kevin Charles and Alexix Salgado are suffering from life-altering burns suffered while unloading an aircraft.

During the operation, a can-loader malfunctioned and engulfed both employees in flames. Both Kevin and Alexis were burnt severely on their face, hands and legs suffering 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-degree burns, as well as a broken leg, suffered while jumping to safety. 

Lost time for these two workers will be paid at 60% of their normal wages. Anything collected will help them and their families during this difficult time. 

Please donate what you can.  Anything is appreciated. 

Thank You,

Kevin Smith
President, TWU Local 525
