Brothers and Sisters:

We had planned on holding the August general body meetings this month throughout our system, however, with the increased infection rate related to the Delta Variant, we feel it is only prudent to continue to avoid large gatherings.

Unfortunately, that has led us to the conclusion that we must, once again, cancel our general body meetings. This decision was made based on the facts that all counties have substantial COVID-19 transmission levels and hospitalizations have doubled in many areas

New York State has done a good job of slowing the transmission and we need to continue to help with that initiative.

Many organizations throughout the state are beginning to require vaccinations for entry into public and private buildings. In order to keep everyone safe, we may need to re-evaluate our requirements as well.

We ask that any questions or concerns you may have be brought to your Steward, Chief Steward or Executive Board. Staff will follow up with them to address any issues as they arise.

Thank you for your patience through these trying times.

Theodore Skerpon - President/Business Manager
