Pandemic Update December 18th, 2020 (21st Edition)
Brothers and Sisters,
As the Business Manager, the video message presented here results from the hard work and determination by your Officers, Business Representatives, Electrical Insurance Trustees, both Union and Contractors, and last, but certainly not least, the Administrative Staff at E.I.T. and your Union Hall. This COVID-19 assistance program has been a work in progress since the beginning of the Pandemic.
While we have and will continue to work to assist this Membership, both Actives, and Retirees, during these challenging times, this announcement is something that historically Local 134 has never seen. While we realize it will not fix everything for all, it will give some relief to the Brothers and Sisters that have been on the book for an extended time. It will also provide the option of early retirement for some Members. Let’s be very clear on one thing; the staff at both E.I.T. and Union will need your PATIENCE to make these programs successful. We have summaries of both programs on our websites (www.lu134.org and www.fundoffice.org).
There will be an enormous number of questions, and our goal is, as always, to get each and every one of you the information you need to make an informed decision.
Stay safe; stay strong. Stay 134 Strong!!
Business Manager/Financial Secretary
