Good day Brothers and Sisters. I’d like to share with you some links to some helpful websites while we all battle through the COVID – 19 pandemic.

For those still dealing with unemployment insurance claims go to https://access.nyc.gov/faq-for-pandemic-unemployment-benefits/ As you all know, the number of people filing claims has overwhelmed the system but keep trying if you have not yet been successful. Patience and persistence. Two very well-known attributes of Local One Brothers and Sisters!

NYC is opening testing sites citywide and prioritizing those most at risk. Call 1-888-ONEMED1 or go to https://onemedical.com/ and use the code NYCCARE30.

For assistance getting meals delivered, go to https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/contact/services/COVID-19FoodAssistance.shtml or call 311.

Also, the NYC DOE is assisting families with remote learning. Request a remote learning device by April 30th at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/ or call 718-935-5100 and choose option 5.

Finally, as you know from the April Notice and yesterday’s email blast, the APRIL REGULAR MONTHY MEETING IS CANCELLED. ALL MEMBERS WILL RECEIVE ONE MEETING CREDIT.

I sincerely hope that the over eighty email blasts that started back on March 9th in regard to COVID-19 have been helpful to you and your families.

As always, stay safe, stay home, stay strong. UNION STRONG!

From NYC, the Land of Hope and Dreams – Bobby
