FROM: Andrew Washington, Acting President
RE: Cancellation of March meetings and postponement of election
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and in the paramount interest of protecting the Metropolitan Washington Council’s affiliates and delegates, the National AFL-CIO has granted us permission to cancel Monday’s delegate meeting and to postpone the election that was scheduled to be held at that meeting. The AFL-CIO has directed me to convene a special emergency phone meeting of the MWC Executive Board next week in concert with the AFL-CIO to discuss options moving forward. Details on the date/time of that meeting will be forthcoming.
Please take all necessary precautions to protect yourselves, your families, colleagues and members as we work together to face and surmount this crisis. Solidarity!
