As all of you should have heard by now, a Declared National Emergency is in effect. Forty states have declared a state of emergency with drastic steps being taken to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. This is a threat that we all need to take seriously. That is why, for the next 30 days, Local 104 will be limiting the amount of personal contact as much as possible. Union Representatives are always available via phone or email.
The following measures will go into effect immediately!
1. Thursday’s union meeting is cancelled.
2. All classes will be cancelled including cert updates.
3. Apprentice classes will be cancelled.
The union halls will remain open for business with limited foot traffic.
You will still be able to refer out of any union hall.
We ask that you please call the hall or utilize our online services whenever possible. www.ibew104.org
- Please pay your dues online or over the phone. We have temporarily waived credit card fees.
- You will be allowed to initially sign and re-sign the books online.
- There will be no merchandise sales.
- No walk-ins.
In the interest of safety, we ask that you respect these temporary changes and refrain from “Just Visiting” the union halls.
Please know if you have symptoms or you know of possible exposure you must remain diligent and self-quarantine.
