The World Health Organization (WHO) has now characterized the outbreak of COVID – 19 as a “pandemic”, possibly causing Local Unions to operate differently than normal.
The General Executive Board has requested that all local union operations need to change with this following information.
All local union doors need to be closed, the staff will provide service to members by phone and/or e-mail. If you need to meet anyone from the local you will have to make an appointment before you go to the office. If necessary, the business manager will decide if anyone of the staff need to work from home has the situation evolves. Luckily, we could do an assessment of what is required to adapt working from home.
All apprenticeship classes need to be suspended until further notice from (WHO).
Monthly meetings of March and April will be cancelled until further notice.
E-board meetings will be by teleconference and all important monetary resolutions need to be suspended. The e-board can take minor resolutions.
We acknowledged that due to the serious and evolving of the COVID-19, this is a highly fluid situation. The virus itself is very contagious, so it spreads very rapidly.
We are taking this decision in the effort to stop the virus. We will get through this tough situation. we are very sorry for the inconveniences.
