SHOP STEWARDS SEMINAR CANCELLED FOR 2020

Based upon the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Shop Stewards Seminar originally scheduled for Tuesday, October 20, 2020 has been cancelled. Any attempts to hold a Seminar of this magnitude at the Local 464A Union Auditorium would not only be a violation of State law and CDC Guidelines, but would also not be in the best interest of the safety and welfare of our outstanding Shop Stewards.

We are hopeful that we will once again be able to schedule this most important training seminar for our Stewards next year.

THE COVID-19 WORLD HAS IMPACTED OUR WORKPLACE



Working safely and working smartly in our supermarkets, warehouses and processing plants has become demanding and stressful. Apart from the wearing of masks and observing social distancing, many of us have also become policemen finding it necessary to regulate the actions of customers and some coworkers to assure proper safety. Unfortunately, the situation may get worse before it gets better, especially if we see a large spike in the number of cases in the New York-New Jersey Metro Area.
