Challenging Times

It is no secret that most of us are dealing with unprecedented challenges right now due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Most of the units of our Local have been impacted and have had to shut down and make changes per the governor’s executive order. Some of our units have returned to work when the governor lifted the stay home order. With the big 3 coming back on line most of our units are operating again (albeit in a somewhat different capacity). The overriding concern in all of our units is that, if they are working, that our members are protected and as Safe as Possible!  The unfortunate choice that some of our members are forced to make is one of personal safety for us and our families or return to work and provide for our families. With the challenges facing our members involving the unemployment system it is placing everyone in a very uncomfortable position. On the Local front I would like to say Thank you to Dean Poggiali who is our Community Service Chair and United Way Labor liaison for the daily updates to all of us throughout the area with information and resources available to help as much as possible during these challenging times. The Local recently had our Triennial Elections for the Local Officers and our Units as well. Congratulations to all of those who were elected to your respective leadership positions. I look forward to working with each and every one of you to help our Local move forward, in one direction, to serve those who have entrusted us to lead them and protect their best interests. In these challenging times our Solidarity and Unity will be tested more than ever!
