Brothers and Sisters,
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a public health emergency unprecedented in our lifetimes.
As always, our priority is your health and safety. We urge you and our employers to take all recommended steps to prevent exposure to the virus. Please read this guidance from North America’s Building Trade Unions (NABTU) and the Center for Construction Research and Training, follow its recommendations, and speak out if your employers aren’t also observing its directives.
In addition, the NABTU’s 2020 Legislative Conference, scheduled for March 30-April 3 has been cancelled, following the recommendations of public health authorities.
We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
Please stay healthy, be safe, and look out for your brothers and sisters. We’re all in this together and your union will do everything possible to protect your well-being.
All the best,
Daniel E. Stepano
