Brothers and Sisters,

I hope you had a happy New Year and that your families are staying safe and healthy.

As you know, COVID-19 cases continue to rise across our region. In order to prioritize the health and safety of you and your family and follow statewide guidance to reduce indoor gatherings to a maximum of 10 people, we are canceling our monthly union meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday, January 7.

We recognize this is disappointing news to many of you. Please know that we are taking every step possible to curb the spread of infection and stay in compliance with state and local guidelines. Access to the Union Hall, Trust Fund Offices, and Training Center will continue to be curtailed due to restrictions on the number of people permitted inside the building each day.

We look forward to meeting in person when it is safe to do so, and with a vaccine on the horizon, we hope that day is not too far off.

If you have a concern or question of any sort, please reach out to one of the full-time union officers.

Stay well and be safe.

In Solidarity,

Tom Kerr
Business Manager/Financial Secretary-Treasurer
