COVID-19 Update
Updated On: Mar 20, 2020

Brothers and Sisters:  The fight continues with the Covid-19 pandemic.  We met with the AGC of Western WA today about the ground zero concerns in WA.  They shared the guidance they are providing contractors and we discussed the efforts and safety protocols that WSDOT and Sound Transit are implementing. 

We recognize that there is a lot of concern and uncertainty during this time and we are doing are best to provide the members with any and all information at our disposal.  It is important that we all remain as calm as we can under the circumstances, do not report or share any information that you are not sure is fact, and be safe and cautious about exposure.  There are a lot of rumors out there that only adds to the stress and anxiety of everyone about the state of affairs.  We will get through this and it is important that members get as prepared as they can, limit exposure, and follow the guidance we’ve posted and are being shared by various sources.   

Our primary focus is for your safety and if you have any concerns about exposure or your worksite safety conditions we ask that you alert your employer and your field representative immediately.  If you are facing or considering job separation, whether initiated by your employer or you, make certain the reason for the separation is clear to both parties and mutually understood. This will aid in sorting out the variety of economic protections and assistance available in your circumstance.
