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
In line with guidance handed down from the IBEW Sixth District, in order to keep our members healthy and try to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Local 159 business office will be temporarily closed to all external traffic.
We will continue to staff the office and serve members through telephone and electronic communication, but we will not meet with members or the public who visit the Local 159 office.
