March 13 2020…The Local has closed the office to the public, trainees and members until further notice. We are erring on the side of caution to prevent coincidental transmission of the COVID 19 Virus until we are sure that there is no risk to our members and their extended families.
We are all acutely aware of the close quarters our members have to work in with each other and other trades. Below we have uploaded joint statements from the BC Building Trades and the Construction Labour Relations. There is also a poster showing recommended actions to take to avoid exposure to or exposing others to viruses.
