THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING OF OUR MEMBERS AND STAFF REMAINS OUR TOP PRIORITY

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING

MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY-TREASURER

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

As of the writing of this message, it appears from reports that we will be in this lockdown situation at least another month.

Local 671 is taking this situation very seriously.  We have limited the access to our office and are practicing social distancing.  I have also asked the Business Agents to avoid any unnecessary visits to limit their exposure and yours to further protect you, your families and themselves.

Teamsters Local 671 has requested the steps taken by all companies under contract with us to protect the safety of our members and the public.  We have posted those responses on the website.  Please review them and if they are untrue or insufficient, please email us so we can properly look into and address the situation.

During this crisis, we are operating as normal as possible.  With the layoffs of approximately 1/3 of our membership, we have reduced our staff hours and we have been forced to lay off our 2 Field Representatives.  We are trying to find other ways to cut some of the costs to protect the solvency of the Local after this crisis passes.

I ask for your patience and help during this very difficult time.

For those of you who are covered under the Local 671 Health Services, Teamsters 671a Health Services, New England Teamsters Pension Fund or the New England Teamsters Federal Credit Union, these services continue to operate under some alternate processes.  Please refer to their websites or ours for more information.

Your Business Agents, Local Union and Health Fund Staff are still available to assist you however due to the reduced staffing and hours there may be a slight delay in getting back to you.  The union office and health fund offices all have instructions on how to contact your representatives and leave your message.  All calls will be answered as promptly as possible.

We sincerely thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time. The safety and well-being of our members and their families and staff remains our top priority.  Above all, please take all recommended precautions to safeguard yourselves and your families.

If you have any questions, please contact us through the options listed below.

Message from the Secretary-Treasurer

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

I am writing on behalf of the Officers and Staff of Teamsters Local 671. The current situation with this coronavirus finds all of us in a very unfamiliar way.  While the rules are changing daily, we are trying to keep members informed.

We are receiving many questions that there are no direct answers for.  Above all, we all need make sure that we along with our families are safe.  Some of the questions regarding what to do if you test positive, have been exposed to the virus or you are not feeling well need to be decided by you.  We have been in touch with virtually all the companies that we represent and they have concurred that if you feel you should not go to work, let the employer know you will not be disciplined for absenteeism related to this virus.

During this crisis, the Business Agents and I will be limiting our on-site visits for obvious reasons. Our Business Agent’s reports will be on our website soon. Our office is currently operating daily with the mandatory restrictions in place. We are all available via email, text and phone at the numbers and addresses listed below.

Union Hall                        860-242-3200

Field Representative

Please read all the postings on our website at www.teamsters671.com, our Facebook page and the bulletin boards in your workplaces or simply call the Union Hall.  We will answer the questions that we know the answers to.

Again, above all, keep your families safe and practice the precautions that have been put into place for this reason.  Due the daily changes being imposed, as of the writing of this letter, many things could have already changed.

Fraternally yours,

Dave Lucas

Secretary-Treasurer
