July’s union meeting is CANCELLED.

With July 1st in the rear view mirror and auto insurance renewals taking place, we once again want to remind you that the Local 333 Health Insurance does NOT in any way cover auto related claims. It is imperative that you do NOT reduce your Auto Insurance Health Care Coverage. If so, it will be at your own risk. Republicans and Democrats who supported and rushed the bill through should be ashamed. This was a gift to the Auto Insurance Company’s in an effort to simply get the liability off Auto Insurance Carriers and on to Traditional Health Care Insurance Plans. Local 333 Health and Welfare is doing well at this time but simply not in a position to accept the new risk.

THE LOCAL 333 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR WAS DELAYED ONE MONTH THIS YEAR DUE TO THE COVID 19 OUTBREAK. APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE MAY 1, 2020. THE DEADLINE TO APPLY HAS BEEN EXTENDED. APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY JULY 28, 2020 AND IN THE JACKSON OFFICE BY JULY 31, 2020. MEMBERS MAY REQUEST AN APPLICATION BY EMAILING JONI AT jthomas@local333.com OR CALLING 517-784-1106 EXT. #4 AND LEAVING A MESSAGE.
