LOCAL 1340 COVID-19 Policy Notification
Mar 17, 2020

March 17, 2020

Please be advised that the leadership of IBEW local 1340 is closely monitoring the ongoing situation regarding the increase of COVID-19 cases in our area and across the country.   In order to ensure the safety and health of our staff and members we have decided to implement the following policy changes and recommendations effective immediately.

  1. After careful consideration we have made the decision to cancel the March General Meeting.  All discretionary business will be postponed until the April General meeting unless notified otherwise.
  2. We have canceled all discretionary travel and non-required meetings for the next 30 days.  Any required meetings will be held via conference call or other remote attendance methods if reasonably possible. Please contact our office if you are unsure about the status of any meeting you plan to attend within the next 30 days.
  3. The Administration office will be open during normal business hours, however, we are asking all members to limit in-person visits as much as possible. We are also asking any member who finds it necessary to conduct business in person to make an appointment, this will allow us to better manage the number people in the administration office at any one time.  
  4. All original book 1 signing will be permitted via email and should be directed to jeff@ibew1340.com please put “Book 1” in the subject line.
  5. All training classes and apprenticeship classes have been suspended until further notice please confer with the Training Dept. (o) 757.875.1744 (m) 757.814.5714 for additional information.  We are working to ensure that apprentices will complete their required training as scheduled.
  6. Members and employees who have reason to believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 or have experience symptoms are encouraged to stay home.

As the situation changes we may find it necessary to alter this policy or take additional steps to help safeguard our staff and members. If there is a need to temporarily close the administration office, I will still be available on my mobile @ 757.288.9684 and Aaron Woodard will be available @ 757.719.6110. Please refer to the IBEW 1340 website IBEW1340.com for the latest updates.  We sincerely hope these measures will be effective and we look forward to getting back to normal business as quickly as possible. The officers and staff thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
