NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS:

I have been contacted by several members regarding the District mandated "Covid 19" testing of all employees.

This is the official response/position of the Union and it's members. Anytime the District mandates any type of "new testing" where it changes the terms & conditions of employment, ANY AND ALL TESTING MUST BE DONE DURING THE COURSE OF THE EMPLOYEES DUTY DAY!!!!

We will begin our virtual zoom membership meetings this Saturday, December 5th @ 9:00am. Please be sure the Local has your updated email so we can send you out the zoom link. If you are unsure if we have it, please send your email to [email protected] before Friday evening, that's when the email will be sent to the members we have on our list who attend the meetings regularly.

At this point, we have 2 vendors you can go to for your safety shoes. These vendors are Work Ware, & Red Wing. Yes, Red Wing is back. APS has issued a temporary hold on Boot Barn. We will add that vendor to the list when it has been released, in the event it is released.

Please remember to take advantage of the USE OF YOUR ENTIRE $160.00 voucher, you can obviously get your safety shoes, and with the remainder you can purchase in-souls, arch supports, & anything else directly related to the shoe/boot.

Due to the continued Pandemic Covid-19, we will have to move our Union meetings to Zoom, until further notice. We have been denied the use of schools through out the District, due to the Pandemic.
