Brothers and Sisters,

Hope you and your families are doing well.

I'm writing to you today regarding this month's Local One meeting.

Our October meeting will take place **TONIGHT** (Thursday, October 15) at 7:00pm. We will live-stream the meeting from downstairs via YouTube Live -- just like our last meeting.

Along with our officers' reports, this month's meeting will include an important presentation by Local One's Safety Committee focused on on-the-job fatalities. As always, ensuring our members return home from work safely is Local One's top priority. That said, this presentation will highlight vital safety protocols and procedures.

A text message that contains a link to access the meeting will be sent your way around 6:30pm. If you have any questions you'd like answered during tonight's meeting, please email them to localonecovid19@gmail.com. Local One officers will address your questions during tonight's livestream.

I very much look forward to speaking with all of you tonight.
 
Stay Interested, Involved and Informed

Be safe, 

Lenny
