RE: COVID-19 Virus

At this early stage of the pandemic in North America every segment of our economy is faced with balancing how to conduct business while also preserving the health and safety of our workers.

The management committee has decided to close both Union halls (Spokane and Portland) to the public and will be open by appointment only. All future meetings are cancelled until further notice. Despite the temporary closure of the halls, please know that all your Union representatives remain on the job, and are available at any time via phone, text, or email. If you need anything, please feel free to contact us.

I have every confidence that, as with past crises, we will match these pressing times with the dedication and determination that has characterized BAC’s Membership and Leadership for over 150 years.

Thank you for your understanding.

In Solidarity,

Matt Eleazer
