Spring Shop Steward School – CANCELED

After careful consideration following increased concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we have made the decision to postpone our May 2020 Spring Shop Steward School until this Fall – specifically, October 10 & 11, 2020. We will continue to follow CDC recommendations, government mandates, and city orders in support of the health & safety of our communities. This rapidly-evolving situation is concerning to us all. Should more changes and adjustments be required, we will keep you notified. Your patience is appreciated and we ask that you continue to practice good hand-washing and social distancing. Take care and be kind. We look forward to gathering with you all soon.
