    Brothers & Sisters,

    It is with great regret to inform you that there was an on the job accident yesterday June 29th, in Local # 2 Chicago, IL.  Brother Bill Rogers mechanic, 61 years old, was working for Parkway Elevator Co. when the accident occurred during a re-roping job.  Today, June 30th, Brother Rogers passed away due to the injuries he received.  Brother Rogers was married and has an adult daughter.  No other deetails are available as the investigation is ongoing.  Please Keep Brother Rogers and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you and work safe.   Mike

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brother Rogers family and co workers at Local #2.  Rest in peace, Brother, until we meet again.

    Brothers and Sisters,

    There have been many questions regarding whether an employer can direct employees to wear a respirator, face mask/covering during the work day for their safety or the safety of others, the answer is yes.  Many employers are making them mandatory as part of their Safety Policy.  The mandatory use of this PPE may be while a person is working alone, is unable to social distance or in addition to social distancing.  In the end, all employers and members must follow OSHA's General Duty Clause which states:

    (a)   Each employer - (1) shall furnish, to each of his employees', employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees. (2) shall comply with occuplational safety and health standards promulgated under this act.

    (b)   Each employee - shall comply with occupational safety and health standards and all rules, regulations, and orders issued pursuant to this Act which are applicable to his/her own actions and conduct.

    If you or our members have questions regarding working or returning to work during the COVID-19 Pandemic, please refer to the CDC Guidelines and OSHA Guidance information.  The links to the information had been sent our to All Locals and can also be found at https://.iuec.org/index/php/iuec-covid-19-resources/.

    Thank you and Work Safe,

    Mike Langer - IUEC Director of Safety

    The Union Meeting for Thursday, June 11, 2020 has been Cancelled due to the Covid 19 10 person rule.  The June inductees will still be sworn in at 3:00 pm on that same day.

    Brothers and Sisters,

    OSHA has just issued COVID-19 guidance for the construction industry.  This guidance closely mirrors the requirements in the NABTU/CPWR standards adopted by the Governing Board of The American Building Trades Unions (NABTU) last month with your input, which CPWR used to produce and present the CPWR/COVID-19 Awareness Training.  Although the guidance falls short on explicitly requiring respirators when workers are within six feet of other workers or civilians, it very clearly infers that employers need to assess hazards and comply with 1910.134.

    The link, for this guidance, is under the ACTION CENTER to the left on this website.

    Thank you for continuing your efforts in order to protect your members during this pandemic.  Please continue to enforce ont he job Safety and make sure your members recognize the daily Safety hazards that are always present during their work day.

    Thank you and work safe,

    Mike Langer, IUEC Director of Safety

    Brothers and Sisters,

    Due to the Corona Virus outbreak, and the State of Maryland limitation on the number of people that can gather together, we will be Cancelling our annual picnic.  I want to apologize for this.  I know that this event is something many members, and their families, look forward to every year.  We are not willing to take the chance of any of our members, active or retired, or their families being exposed to this Virus.  We will check and see if Camp Letts will be available at a later date, but for the present time, our Picnic is cancelled.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me, 301-459-497, extension 17.

    Fraternally,

    Sonny Yeatman, Jr.

    IUEC Local #10 President

    Words of Wisdom

     Racism and economic injustice are tied at the hip and in this moment we must remind ourselves that the trade union movement at its best is a powerful force against these poisons.  Both on the job and in the street we have fought for fair treatment, decent wages, healthcare, family leave, and retirement security for all workers regardless of race or gender: Transport Workers Union
