COVID-19 Response and Closure Updates

A Message from Bus. Manager Chew

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you know our current situation with the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Saturday March 21, 2020 Governor Murphy issued a stay at home executive order for all non-essential workers which includes all non-profit organization.

Given our status being a non-profit organization we will close the office beginning Monday March 23, 2020 until our States situation improves.

Moving forward given our ability to access our dispatch system from the web and handle most of our duties from home, we should get through this with minimal disruption. Especially since many of our current and upcoming work has been delayed because of the virus. Those members whose jobs are not shut down, I urge you to use social distancing and proper hygiene when ever possible and by all means if you are not feeling well stay home.

All phone calls to the office will be forwarded to my cell phone or to one of the Business Agents cell phone as to not disrupt our ability to service our members and contractors to the best of our ability during this time.

We will be arranging conferences calls with both the Executive Board and the Scholarship Committee so that business can be conducted in a manner that would best serve our members and our organization.

I ask you all to keep a close look out for emails, text and to visit our website as this is the fastest and most efficient way at this time to communicate. Any updates on our situation will be communicated in this manner. We will do our best to get information out to those members that do not have the ability to receive emails or

We must all use social distancing and proper hygiene to lessen the affects of this virus. Keep your families safe!

Very Truly Yours,

James Chew
