Due to the extension of the shelter in place until May 31st, local lodge 1781 has decided to cancel the regularly scheduled general meetings for the months of May and June. Although we have gone to great lengths to try and keep our lodge clean and sanitary for our members, we feel that it would be in the bet interest of the membership that these meetings be cancelled to adhere to the shelter in place ordinance and keep the social distancing of more than 6 feet.
Local 1781 was granted dispensation from Brother Martinez to defer the nominations and election of delegates to the IAMAW 40th Grand Lodge Convention to May and June, respectively. Given that these meetings are now cancelled we will be using a vote by mail process as directed by the Grand Lodge. We hope that all our members are taking every necessary precaution to keep themselves and their families safe amid this global pandemic.
As always should you need any assistance please contact one of your union officials.
President, IAMAW Local Lodge 1781
