Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this email finds you well. This has been a challenging time to say the least, and April 2021 has been no exception. As many of you know, our union lost a fellow Brother to COVID-19 just days ago. With that in mind, please remain vigilant and safe -- we are not out of the woods yet. Continue to protect yourself, as well as your loved ones.

Todays' communication is regarding Local One's April meeting, which will take place **TOMORROW** (April 15) at 7:00pm. Just like our last several meetings, a text message -- including a link to access the meeting -- will go out to members prior to the meeting. If you have any questions or concerns ahead of tomorrow's live-stream union meeting, please send those to the following email address: localonecovid19@gmail.com. We look forward to addressing these items during the meeting tomorrow evening.

During tomorrow's meeting, we will read resolutions that are to be brought forth at this year's convention. On behalf of myself, as well as Local One's delegates to the convention and the Executive Board, we would like to thank you -- the entire membership -- for your feedback pertaining to these resolutions. Your thoughts and opinions are invaluable and much appreciated.

I look forward to speaking with you tomorrow. In the meantime, please work safe and do everything in your power to stay healthy. Your health and safety will always be my top priority.

God Bless – Stay Interested, Involved, and Informed,

Lenny
