GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS


Latest Dues delinquency list:


Good Morning Brothers and Sisters,

The Pennsylvania Pandemic Unemployment Assistance site for gig workers is now up and running.

https://www.uc.pa.gov/unemployment-benefits/file/Pages/Filing-for-PUA.aspx

Thank you,
Mark


Sisters, Brothers, Kin—

As you know, the COVID-19 virus poses a significant risk to many of our members who are older, disabled, or immunocompromised. Additionally, many of our members are caretakers of others who fall into the at-risk category, and they simply cannot risk going to the store to get what they need.

If that sounds like you, we wanted to let you know that we’ve created a system to have trusted IATSE volunteers help get you what you need, like groceries or prescriptions.

The service is free, but is available on an as-needed, as available basis for members. That means that we need to confirm one of our 2,000 volunteers is in your area. Still, our goal is to successfully respond to each member in need request within 72 hours.

If you are a member in need, please click here to learn more about the IATSE C.A.R.E.S. delivery service.

Additionally, we encourage everyone to help make members who are less internet-savvy aware of this program, and even input requests for them on the iatsecares.org website IF ASKED TO DO SO.


In solidarity,
The IATSE C.A.R.E.S. Task Force


Brothers and Sisters,

Follow the Stimulus package and the details as they are working on approval. Last I checked "gig" workers and free lancers are included and could supply 4 months of unemployment benefits. I will not be much help to answer any questions but hope this helps.

Thank you,
Mark
