Work has been slowing down a little and we have had a few members put on the Out of Work List. If you are not working, please make sure to call the union hall and put yourself on the list. If we don’t know you’re out of work we can’t notify you when a contractor needs man power. Please remember to call in the first day of each month to remain on the list.
2020 has been quite the year. While most of us have been affected by Covid-19 one way or another, District Council 16 and all the locals have been working at full capacity to make sure the members and contractors needs are met. Rules and procedures are in place for your safety and the staff’s safety. If you need assistance please call the union hall, we will help you or make arrangements to have you come into the office. Office visits are by appointment only.
I would like to wish all of you a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Please be safe and I hope to see you all next year.
