MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY-TREASURER
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
I want to begin by hoping that all of you and your families are safe and well.
The members of Local 671 are playing an essential part in this current crisis. As most of you are aware, Teamsters Local 671 represents members in many areas directly and indirectly effected by the pandemic. Our nurses and other workers in the nursing homes we represent are on the front lines dealing with the many people who are affected by this disease. Our ambulance paramedics and EMTs are aiding in providing the care these people need. Our DHL and UPS members are working excessive hours providing the supplies and products to the public. Our construction workers, warehouse workers, public sector workers, delivery drivers and workers at the oil & propane companies are all working to protect our families and the public. Teamsters have always played important parts in any disaster. Our members always answer the call. Thank you to these members who are working to protect us all.
I also need to truly thank the staff of the union and our health fund offices. These workers also answered the call when asked. Our offices have been operating as close to normal as possible through this crisis. Thanks to these workers as well.
As we continue through this crisis, we will adjust to this ever-changing environment.
We are planning on reopening our offices on July 13th with a modified business plan. There will be many precautions in effect such as the need to make an appointment to come into the Union Hall and you will also be required to wear a mask at all times. All social distancing will be observed. Please go to the website for other mandatory procedures that will be in place. We will abide by all State Regulations and the Governor’s Executive Orders.
We are following these guidelines to protect our members, staff, your families and the public.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Union Hall or talk to your Business Agents. We are here to help.
I ask for your patience and help during this very difficult time.
WE WILL ALL GET THROUGH THIS UNITED TOGETHER
