RE: Montana HB 251

Dear BAC Local 1 Members,

I write to inform you that the Montana Legislature is currently considering bill H.B. 251 - a union
busting piece of legislation. H.B. 251 would make Montana a “Right-to-Work” state, or what we
call, “Right-to-Work for Less”.

RE:          Oregon & Washington “Shelter-In-Place” Orders

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

You may have heard that yesterday, Oregon Governor Brown and Washington Governor Inslee both issued "Stay at Home" orders requiring "non-essential" businesses to close. You may also have heard that construction was exempted from Governor Brown’s order as an "essential" industry, and that some, but not all, construction work was exempted from Governor Inslee’s order.
