Brothers and Sisters:
The National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP) has decided that all apprentice classes will be held virtually for the Fall 2020 semester with no in-person instruction.
All apprentices should have received notification through Business Manager John Driscoll, Jr. and their NEIEP email on which classes they are enrolled in as well as instructions on how to access educational material.
Starting September 8, Brothers Jerry Reitz and Tim Narowitz are available Mondays and Tuesdays through Microsoft Teams to answer questions on course material. Apprentices are expected to have read and reviewed the material prior to accessing Teams. These sessions are encouraged but not required.
If you have any questions regarding your class assignment, you can contact John at JEDriscoll@iueclocal17.org or 216-431-8088. For questions on technical issues with class laptops, software or access to material email NEIEP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The International in conjunction with the North American Building Trades Union (NABTU) have established a voting information website for IUEC members. The site, elevatorconstructorsvote.org, has tabs to allow the user to check their registration, register to vote and request a mail-in ballot. This one-stop shop is designed to make the voting experience as easy as possible given the procedural uncertainties presented by the continued Covid-19 pandemic. Look for this and other voter registration links on the IUEC Local 17 website, iueclocal17.org.
The deadline to register for the November 3rd general election is October 5.
The next scheduled membership meeting is Friday, September 11. This is dependent on the availability of the hall by Laborers Local 310.
