Building Trade Locals
For unionized members of the building trades looking for more information about your specific trade, please call your Local for information. While you may have lots of questions, we remind you that the Locals will be receiving many calls and will work hard to keep up. To help Locals help you faster, please follow the following guidelines:
- Please do NOT go to the Local without an appointment; this will help us all prevent exposure and allow people to do their jobs without interruption.
- Call or email the Local for information. Unless critically urgent, please give your Local a chance to work on your issue. Tell the Local what you need and give your agents time to work on it.
- Locals will also be making plans and procedures for eventual recalls. Please wait for that information as it will be sent as soon as possible.
During these times, it’s important to stay connected. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates. If you have an urgent question or concern, call us at 204-956-7425 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
