  2. We are sending text messages regarding important news and political updates.
  3. We are sharing tips to stay healthy and IUPAT Call to Action updates on all social media platforms.
  4. Business Representatives are visiting several job sites to address our member’s concerns.
  5. If you get laid off be sure to use the MASS LAYOFF NUMBER 2000180. Call Nichole for assistance- 440-239-4575

Dear FTIOR Apprentices, Contractors, Staff and Journeyman:

Today, we’d like to update you on steps the Finishing Trades Institute of the Ohio Region (FTIOR) has taken to minimize the potential impact of an outbreak. The Board of Trustees have met to proactively guide the FTIOR’s response and preparation. We will provide additional updates on a regular basis as the situation continues.

Effective MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2010, the FTIOR Training Centers will be open to employees only; but ALL APPRENTICESHIP AND JOURNEYMAN classes are CANCELLED  until at least June 1st, to coincide with the Governor’s order concerning school closings.  Student and Faculty Guidelines (Academic/Credit Classes) 

Apprentices will be assigned online training which will be required to be completed in order to ensure they have the hours for your next wage review.  Apprentices should contact their instructor immediately to obtain their assignments.

We will continue to evaluate new information as it becomes available and provide timely updates to the members and contractors signatory to District Council 6. Your understanding as guidelines shift in response to emerging information is greatly appreciated.

If you have questions, email georgeb@iupat-dc6.org, and we will do our best to provide answers as we work through this situation.

In the meantime, let’s work together to keep everyone healthy and safe.
