Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I hope you are all well and following the CDC guidelines to ensure you and your family remain safe during the ongoing pandemic. I would like to congratulate all our graduate apprentices for the Fall class of 2020, the future of our Local is depending on your continued success, so keep up the good work!
By now, all members should have received their ballot for the upcoming election in the mail. Unfortunately, the postage that is usually included on the return envelope was missed. This is easily remedied by placing a stamp on the envelope and placing it in your outgoing mail. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you and encourage all members to fill out their ballot and mail it as soon as possible. Your vote is important, make sure that you participate in our electoral process. I would like to thank the election committee for their continued efforts, both in preparing the mail out, and the upcoming ballot count, thank you for taking the time to participate in this important function.
In closing, I encourage all of you to continue making your best effort to stay safe during the pandemic. I am pleased to report that our Local has seen a relatively low rate of infection among our members. This shows that the protocols and safety measures taken by Union, Contractor, and Member are working. Please stay vigilant, by working together, we will overcome this pandemic and resume our “normal” lives.
