March 17th 2020 – COVID-19 Update

We met with the contractors today and expressed concerns about what is happening, or may potentially happen, on job sites. We didn’t get many answers. There are still many unknowns. We are trying to find out all we can. It is in everyone’s interest to keep every worker safe.

This afternoon, the International Office came out with the NECA/IBEW National Disease Emergency Response Agreement. Please read it. http://www.ibew.org/media-center/Articles/20Daily/2003/200317_IBEW_NECA_Sign

Here are some local information resources you may find helpful:

We wish we had more to tell you. We will keep you updated as events unfold. We hope to post more detailed local information soon.

Meanwhile, be prepared and be safe.

In solidarity,
Local 159 staff
