A T T E N T I O N!

Public Statement Dated: April 7, 2020

Greetings,

As previous posts had suggested, the Union hall was scheduled to resume normal operation as of April 6th.  Unfortunately, this will not occur as the pandemic situation is ongoing and has enhanced itself.  Therefore, the physical operation of the facility shall remain on a holding pattern until further notice.  I understand this to be disturbing but careless behavior will lead to unspeakable issues of which 106 will not perpetrate.  Please review the following:

  • The Union office will function at a limited capacity, although we will maintain and process claims, payments etc.
  • All correspondence or transactions should be mailed or electronically submitted to the appropriate entity (please be advised mail will be picked up and “quarantined” for 3-5 days before being processed.)
  • Apprentice classes shall resume on a remote basis.  Please be advised all rules shall apply regarding attendance.  The JATC will contact all apprentices with the necessary information.
  • All functions of Local 106 shall be canceled until further notice.  The Executive Board shall take the necessary action required.

If you need further assistance contact as follows:

  • David Wilkinson: business.manager@ibew106.org
  • David Wilkinson: 716-720-1002
  • Benefits: benefits@ibew106.org
  • Apprenticeship: apprenticeship@ibew106.org
  • Union Business: general.info@ibew106.org
  • Referrals: referral@ibew106.org

I anticipate issues moving forward and will adjust IBEW Local 106’s response as necessary. I ask you to make good decisions regarding the safety and health of the community

Thank you,
David Wilkinson
Business Manager
