The Branch has been receiving numerous phone calls from Carriers that are concerned with the Coronavirus outbreak. Both National Business Agent Rick Dicecca and President Jerry McCarthy asked management to postpone route inspections until the Coronavirus pandemic subsides. Their request was initially denied. But as of March 17th, 2020 at 5:00 PM this was released:

These are positive and important changes, so please continue to remain vigilant in the offices, and neighborhoods where we work. Make sure you are supplied with all the necessary supplies, and equipment to do your job safely. You have a right to a safe work environment, and we all have to contribute in getting us there if we’re not, and keeping us there when we are. Safety, especially in these trying times is everyone’s responsibility!  Make sure you continue to check-in with the Branch 34 website for updates, as we will post as soon as we get new information.
