Here it is April and what would normally be an end to the winter hibernation has now been extended.  With the current situation in the country with regards to COVID-19, we continue to hibernate.   I know many of us, me included, are feeling antsy and ready to head outside to enjoy the warmer weather.  I applaud you for your perseverance, patience, solidarity and compassion in this current environment.  It’s an honor to work with such a wonderful group of people.

Local 1600 leadership, including myself, have been in constant communication with the Companies we represent. Thank you to the Companies and their continuous efforts to provide a safe work environment, continued employment and uninterrupted service to their customers.

There are many measures being put in place that are unprecedented, such as, working from home, temporary change in work location and changing schedules.  All this is being done to provide additional safety measures and to meet CDC recommendations of ‘social distancing.’

Thank you again to all of you.  Please be safe and observe all safety recommendations

Please note, if you would like to be added to the text alerts, please notify Local 1600 via my cell at 610-554-8376 and provide your personal cell phone number and Company.
