                    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.

Local 229 office staff and Business Agents will be working until further notice. Dispatch will be between 7:00am-9:30am. We will call members via telephone from our Out of Work list in numerical order. It is your responsibility to have your current contact information in our system.

For questions regarding the Out of Work list or to update your information, please call the Union Hall. To maintain your number on the Out of work list you may also send an email to info@local229.org

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.

You can reach us by the following methods:
