To our Local 176 family, (Posted June 25,2020)
On behalf of the Officers and Executive Board of Local 176, we hope that all members and their families have maintained their health and safety throughout this COVID-19 pandemic and continue to take every precaution to stay healthy.
At 7:00 PM on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 the Local 176 Executive Board held a meeting via telephone conference call. All Officers and Executive Board members were in attendance. The meeting was called to further assess the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our members and our union. Secretary Treasurer Carlo Foti reported the treasury is currently stable but with all venues still being closed and not providing work for our members, there is no revenue coming in to the Local’s treasury to cover the monthly expenses. Treasurer Foti reported that the International has again approved our request for a relief rebate from the monthly per capita tax.
The Executive Board unanimously approved Vice-President Smith’s motion to continue waiving the charging of dues for the months of July and August. Vice-President Smith also made a motion to continue the payroll reductions for President LoCascio, Treasurer Foti, Business Agent Marinacci, and Recording Secretary Finkelman. The Executive Board unanimously approved both motions, to be reviewed in August.
The Officers and Members of the Executive Board continue to be here to assist and represent the membership during these trying and turbulent times. These are not easy times but our union will continue to be strong and persevere.
