I continue to be in constant contact with the management of both YRCW and ABF. And, I continue to be proud of the professional and dedicated work that our members are doing. You are keeping this country going.
As we all know, we find ourselves in strange and unprecedented times. We don’t have a manual or training guide to take us through every situation that is going to come up. The situation is changing by the hour AND the plan we might come up with one minute is outdated the next. We just have to use good judgment and common sense. Each industry, and each workplace within each industry is different. BUT… the top priority through it all is keeping our members and the public as safe as possible.
