JANUARY AND FEBRUARY

MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS POSTPONED

 

Dear Brother or Sister,

With an abundance of caution concerning the health and safety of our members and their families, Local 37 is postponing the January and February Local Union membership meetings, due to the upsurge of COVID -19 cases in our area. Please watch your mail for future notices regarding the March membership meeting.

In a continuing effort to keep everyone safe, we encourage all members who have business with the Union Hall or the Benefit Fund to do so by phone, email or standard mail. Union dues can be paid by credit card over the phone. Signing the out of work list may be done by email, standard mail or on our website (www.iuoe37.or).

It is our sincere hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy as everyone continues to deal with the ongoing public health crisis. Happy Holidays and thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during these trying times.

 

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Robert A. Holsey, Jr.

Congress has passed two major pieces of legislation addressing COVID-19, and the president has signed them into law. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) were designed to provide economic relief for businesses and workers severely impacted by COVID-19. NABTU lobbied very aggressively to ensure each bill contained policies that would help the working families of the construction industry as well as its contractors.

The Department of Labor (DOL) recently released their long awaited proposed rule to expand apprenticeship programs in the U.S. through an Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Program (IRAP). The regulation creates a parallel track of apprenticeship that no longer has to go through the process of registering and maintaining accountability to the Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship or a State Apprenticeship Council. The current proposal excludes construction, and does not allow the parallel system to exist in the sector. But we need to make sure the exclusion stays in place in the final version of the rule.
