      The Labor Day picnic scheduled on September 7, 2020 has been cancelled.

      This unit meeting steak fries have all been cancelled.

      Unfortunately it seems like we are going backwards with the pandemic which has forced us to cancel these events. These have been tough decisions since we enjoy these events but we need to act on the safety and health of our members and retirees throughout this pandemic.

      We will have a VDV membership meeting on Aug 4th to discuss the agreement. We meet with management on July 28, 2020 for our fourth meeting to hopefully have a tentative agreement to bring to members to ratify on August 4th. All VDV members should have received a post card.
