Exposure Update – One new case was reported today about a bargaining unit member who works in B/076. Someone in their household may have been exposed or had contact with employees from their place of work. The employee, being monitored, has been put on KNDS and is on self-quarantine until they are cleared to return to work. There is no further news to report on the employee being monitored from B/154 which has been previously reported.

Misting – There will be a remisting in B/154 as precautionary. B/076 will have precautionary surface cleaning in designated areas. Misting is scheduled for the Visitors Center and B/110 on Friday June 12th, 2020. Do not forget to store personal belongings including drink cups prior to Misting in your building.

MASKS – The committee has learned that there are employees not wearing masks in the workplace. The Company has clearly stated that Mask wearing in the workplace is MANDATORY. Temporary removal of masks is allowed during breaks and lunches away from other employees, even if it means going outside for a minute to catch a breath of air. Resume wearing your mask and return to work. We will only stay safe if we use common sense by following CDC guidelines. If employees you work around are not wearing masks while working; please call them on it and contact your committee members if they persist. remember, all employees, LM Space or Contractors, have to wear masks on Company grounds.

IAM MasksThe Union Hall is closed to foot traffic due the corona virus; your stewards are providing me with a list of employees within the departments. We will get these masks to your stewards soon. When you receive them, be safe and wash & dry before using. The Union has received an additional shipment of masks this afternoon and will provide members with one additional mask for a total of two per member; we will keep you informed.

Symptom Checking Prior to Work –LM Space employees as well as vendors, are to self-check their symptoms prior to coming into the facility. Temperature checking stations are located at all Bay Area locations; B/202 in Palo Alto, B/602 in Santa Cruz, and the Visitors Center in Sunnyvale. If a temperature of 100.4 is indicated you are to go home and contact the hot line.

Your input continues to be valuable; please continue to pass it on to your stewards, Dimas Resendez, David Johnson, Kimberlee Hamilton Alarcon, Brian Babcock and Rod Thole. Bulletins will also be posted on LL2228 website www.iamll2228.org.

Remember the following:
If someone in your household may have been in contact with someone exposed to the virus – call the Hotline
If you feel sick, stay home, and call the Hotline
If you have been traveling abroad and have returned home, call the Hotline
Social distancing – keep at least 6 feet between you and others when possible including lunch & breaks

For those who are not sick and don’t feel comfortable at work, discuss this with your manager and take time off – using Unpaid, Paid Absence Leave or Vacation, if approved.
