Update in 492 Union Hall Meetings and Functions
3/24/2020 - Due to the Corona Virus Covid-19 issues and for the safety of all involved, the 492 Office will be operating the Union Hall during normal business hours, but the doors will be closed to the public. Any scheduled meetings, pension appointments and other functions at the Union Hall are tentative and subject to cancellation. For the latest updates on meetings and functions, please go to the website before coming to the union hall as they may have been canceled.
Instead of driving to the union hall, we ask that you please call or email your agents instead so that we can limit the social interaction and hopefully get this COVID-19 under control as soon as possible so everyone can go back to their normal lives. There has been a massive increase in the volume of phone calls and emails, but the 492 Business Agents and Staff will continue to work diligently to respond to you as soon as possible. We also highly recommend that you make an appointment if you need to physically talk to your business agent or the staff.
