[District Update, May 11]: Our District staff is continuously staying in contact with the Local Lodge presidents and Chief Shop Stewards. We are monitoring each Governor’s office within our jurisdiction for updates and information about openings. One thing, in particular, we are watching is OH’s state budget, as well as the “rainy-day” fund. PDBR Wright participated in an OH AFL-CIO phone conference with OH Lt. Gov. Husted last week.
Grievance procedures are still processing and can be held over the phone or video conference. The District has held several Staff and E-Board meetings through WebEx.
We have received numerous organizing calls due to working conditions relating to COVID-19 and at-will employment. If you have any organizing leads, we are available at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 239-0401.
Lastly, thank you to the District staff, local lodge leadership, and our members.
