Latest News




Local 440 members, these are the latest updates we have from the COVID-19


  • The biggest take away is still to “stay at home” if you’re sick or anyone in your family or household is
  • Our best advice currently is to try to maintain our workforce for our owners, contractors and benefit funds
  • If you qualify for any of the benefits that start on April 2, 2020 included in the Family First Coronavirus Relief Act you should explore those options with the contractor
  • The CARES act is not finalized at this point. Hopefully it will be soon and there will be more concrete information
  • It would certainly seem that if they qualify for any provision in the FFCRA that we would use that as the first defense in our joint endeavor to keep members working and healthy and financially stable.
  • We need to endeavor to ask that none of our members ask for a lay off in these trying times
  • In our efforts to maintain our work force, we will be informing our members to do everything they can to stay on the jobsites. We must all make a concerted effort to ensure that all CDC and OSHA protocols are being strictly adhered to. This is paramount to try to stop the spread of this very difficult virus. Our joint efforts can’t be weak hearted but must be diligent and direct. I believe that these efforts must include every resource available up to and including involving OSHA to ensure everyone has a safe environment to work in
  • We absolutely make a strong recommendation to all of our members that quitting is not a good option and that they should make every good faith effort to share in the responsibility to keep our workforce intact and keep everyone and their families safe at the same time
