Brothers and Sisters,

I wanted to take the time to update you on a few initiatives we have been working on for you.

I am excited to announce that as of March 5th you can now bid on job assignments online via the Referral Web Portal. If you were not able to attend last month’s union meeting showing the process of online job assignment bidding, give the referral office a call and Gene (referral agent) can go over the process. In addition, the new referral operating procedure is at the referral office for your review, as well as, online. (click here to read it now)

Furthermore, in the coming weeks you will also be able to pay for your dues online via the Referral Web Portal using PayPal.

It is my hope that these new advancements will make it easier for you as a member. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call the union office.

Alan Marzullo
