On May 31, a fire started near an Antioch apartment building and quickly spread to a second building where Teamster Juan “JC” Jaurgui lives with his wife and two kids. JC is a Local 315 member who works at Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery as a solid waste driver.
According to NBC News, aggressive fire response stopped further spread of the fire, caused by fireworks, but 40 residents in eight apartment units were displaced. A suspect was quickly arrested.
JC’s co-workers quickly set up a Go Fund Me site; to date, they’ve raised about $2,400 of the $3,000 goal. In addition, Teamsters Local 315 and Joint Council 7 gave $XXXXX.
“It’s great when the Teamsters can help one of our own. Juan was very appreciative of the assistance from Teamsters Local 315 and Joint Council 7,” said Business Agent David Rodriguez.
