Unfortunately with the COVID 19 pandemic we have not had many events take place as the VAC is closed and most other events have been canceled. Which includes canceling our Annual Holiday Party, We did rebook for next year as we had already made the deposit back in February. In doing so we were given this year’s prices for next year’s event, this was the decision of the Party Committee.
When the pandemic started I know a lot of our members were laid off most of them temporarily, I have been asked many times the amount of 169 members that were laid off and my answer is I have a rough idea only, as most of our members that were not working never notified the Hall. This information could be very useful to fully assess the magnitude of this situation. I ask we all keep this in mind for any future layoffs.
There is a lot of work going on not only in Oakland but all over the East Bay region, I hope this trend continues into next year and beyond. In July 2021 our current contract expires, I would like everyone to start thinking of what they may want not only pay wise but conditions as well, such as High pay, travel pay, tools or anything that you want to add too or change.
