      A Message from Business Manager Roy B. Grosswiler

      Brothers and Sisters:

      The regular membership meeting for March 1, 2021 has been cancelled.The E-Board continues to meet and conduct regular business during this time. If you have any questions contact the office or an E-Board member.

      I want to remind everyone that your receipts for all Medical/ prescription drugs / including all mileage associated with appointments/and dependent care need to be in the funds office by Monday March 1, 2021 to receive your reimbursements. You can generally go to your pharmacy and they will print out all expenses for the last year.

      The inside negotiating committee has been established as follows: Myself, Eric Grosswiler, Bill Box, Tom Enright, Josh Abernathy, Alex Jurkiewicz, Marcus Nagley and Tony Ferris.

      When working mainly in Michigan locals, generally you will need required Safety Modules on your own time. If you have OSHA 30 within the last 4 years we can get that reciprocal with the safety modules and all fees are covered by the LMCC.

      Call Mike Brubaker at the hall.

      Hopefully we can get back to regular meetings in the near future.

      Stay healthy and Safe

      Thanks Roy B. Grosswiler
