Updated August 21, 2020 - Local 258 IBEW ABMs based in Langley have returned to working out of the Union Hall, with the office remaining closed to members and visitors.
March 23, 2020 - Brother Doug McKay, Business Manager of Local 258 IBEW, reports the Local Union office is following public health guidelines and continues to support all efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, including social distancing. Effective today, Monday, March 23, McKay has instructed all Assistant Business Managers who work at the Union Hall in Langley to work remotely from home as we continue to provide services to our members at this time.
McKay says, “The well-being of our staff is a top-priority so we can continue to represent and provide representation and services to our members in your workplaces.”
Administrative support staff have been provided paid-leave during the office closure and the Union is asking members for patience as there may be a delay in responding to issues that are not of an urgent nature.
