Covid 19 Update

Brothers and Sisters,

In effort to reduce exposure of COVID-19 to the membership, office staff, Business Agents, and their families, we are limiting the interaction between member to member and member to staff. We will be closing the day room at the Union Hall to the membership and to the public until further notice. Doing so will ensure the safety and well-being of our members and staff. This is also an attempt to follow the latest National guidelines limiting meetings of groups to less than 10.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. We will do everything we can during this challenging time to provide you with efficient services. info@local229.org

You can reach us by the following methods:

Phone: (858) 571-5238                          Fax: (858) 571-6203

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Be safe, be helpful, be kind.

Please note these changes will remain in effect until you are notified otherwise.
