Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I want to start by saying thank you for your continued support and hard work throughout this crisis. Everyone at the District Council has been working hard to ensure you feel supported during this time. As always, we encourage you to reach out to your Business Agents, the Out of Work List, or the Benefit Funds with any questions or concerns you my have.

As job sites begin to reopen, please understand that we will be working with a “new normal.” We have been working with contractors and health professionals to institute new safety guidelines on job sites. We understand that each job site is different in terms of its size and complexity, which is why these new guidelines will allow for flexibility while still adhering to safety standards.The health and wellness of our membership and their families are of the utmost priorities during these unprecedented times. We look forward to working with everyone as we enter this “new normal.”

The video below is the first in a series of videos where I will explain the new rules and regulations. Please what the video below and remember we are in this together. Your union stands with you.

Joseph Geiger
Executive Secretary-Treasurer
