Due the increasing number of cases of COVID19, we encourage you to call us before coming to the hall. Most of your transactions can be done remotely for the safety of all.
To the Brothers and Sisters, as well as Family Members of IBEW Local 86,
In these times of tumultuous uncertainty regarding the global pandemic and local public health crisis it is now more important than ever, we all remain diligent in doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
I understand how very complicated it can be to maintain social distancing and/or wear a mask while trying to perform our duties as a manual laborer. It is also Our Responsibility to each other to mitigate the spread of the virus, be it through our workforce or more importantly our families at home.
As the weather grows colder and the holiday season fast approaches, people will be indoors and congregating in larger groups. Please take into account your own personal health assessment before attending work or social gatherings. Practice good hand washing hygiene, wear a mask in public and when it permits practice safe social distancing. It is extremely important to us all, that we return home safe and in good health to our loved ones at the end of our shift.
We all do it out of love and respect for the Union Family! Stay safe and diligent Brothers and Sisters.
Very Sincerely and Fraternally yours,
~Raymond A. Ryerse Jr.
