Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I have written a letter to Executive Director Rick Amarosa of the Elevator Manufacturers' Association of New York (EMANY), and all Signatory Contractors. This letter addresses site safety & PPE requirements during the current COVID-19 pandemic. All of our signatory contractors are in full agreement with this communication. If you are not receiving all of your requested PPE, please contact your area Business Agent.

PLEASE STAY HEALTHY AND SAFE!!

Lenny
