Coronavirus Update (March 18, 2020)
March 18, 2020
As the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread across the nation, we're reaching out to let you know that our focus remains on continuing to provide services from Local 94 and the Local 94 Benefit Funds. We want to let you know what we're doing to maintain service levels while keeping you safe.
Out of an abundance of caution and in order to protect the health of our members, participants and staff during this crisis, Local 94 and the Local 94 Benefit Funds are taking certain actions to ensure we can continue to serve you. Local 94, the Local 94 Benefit Funds, and its vendors (i.e., Optum Rx, Blue Cross Blue Shield, John Hancock, etc.) have business continuity plans in place to serve you.
In the near term, we suggest limiting your visits to the Union and Benefit Fund Offices. If possible, please call or email us with any questions or issues you may have. You can find contact information on this site.
As an alternative to the current Sick Fund process, we will allow you to email or fax Sick Fund claim forms (in addition to mail) to us for processing. Normally, we require the original form, but we are making an exception during this crisis. Forms received prior to 11:30 am will be processed and mailed that day. Forms received after 11:30 am will be processed and mailed the next business day. If emailing, please send your form to email@example.com.
As previously communicated, the Local 94 Training Fund continues to be closed until March 27th.
Should you or your family find yourself negatively impacted by COVID-19 and need our support, or if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us via telephone or email.
As always, the safety and well-being of our members, participants and staff are our top priority. We're dedicated to doing our part to support our Local 94 community as well as our global community during these challenging times.
