Scholarship Application Deadline Extended:
Brothers and Sisters,
Due to the Covid-19 situation, many schools are closed or severely understaffed. The result is that many students are unable to get their transcripts and receipts from their educational institutions in time for the standard application deadline of June 30th.
Therefore, the Local Union Scholarship Committee has extended the application deadline this year to October 31, 2020 It is hoped that by then most schools will be re-opened, if not for classes, at least for administration activities and thus make it possible for applicants to get their needed documents.
We sincerely regret that this will delay disbursement of awards until the end of the year, but we believe this to be the fairest way to make it possible for all applicants that are legitimately eligible to avail themselves of this benefit.
Change to the LU131 Annuity Fund COMPLETE!
The Local Union 131 Annuity Fund is now active and managed by Mass Mutual. A training zoom meeting will be hosted by Mass Mutaul on July 28, 2020 at 6:00 pm to introduce members to access and management of their accounts.

Monthly Union Meetings:
Monthly meetings will resume August 12, 2020
NO elections will be held at the August Meeting as all nominees were unopposed.
Monthly Retirees Meetings:
In response to the current corona virus situation and under the continued advisement of the CDC, we are cancelling the May 2020 retirees meeting. Customarily the Retirees Association does not meet for the summer months of June, July and August; so the next meeting will definitely not be before September 2020.
2020 Summer Outing Canceled:
In response to the current corona virus situation and under the continued advisement of the CDC, we are cancelling the 2020 Summer Outing.
Take care and be safe.
