COVID-19 Protocols

Posted September 2, 2021

Attention All Glaziers Local 169 Members,

Due to increasing health and safety concerns raised by the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus, District Council 16 and all affiliated local unions effective Monday August 30th, 2021 have implemented that all staff and visitors to any DC16 facility, for any reason, will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result obtained from a medical professional within 72 hours of entry. This requirement applies, without exception, to all members and staff. Without either, you will not be allowed on the property and asked to leave.

As our own incoming General President Jim Williams Jr has said “What we in unionized construction pride ourselves in is being the safest workforce in the industry,” We’d be crazy to think that we’re promoting health and safety by not having our workforce vaccinated at this point.”

I would like to thank all District Council 16 members for continuing to be leaders in the industry. This will allow all members to continue to work and avoid another potential shutdown of the economy.

Should you have any questions, please contact your Business Agent.
