Message from EST Todd Pancake

Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this finds you all in good health. As we reflect over our past year, we can’t help but wonder what our next challenge will be. COVID-19 has had a major impact on almost every aspect of our day to day routines this past year. Our council has risen to the challenge, from shutting down our training centers in March, and reopening with enhanced safety measures in May. We continued to provide a skilled work force through some tough times.

We were carved out as an essential workforce by governors in all three states, allowing our members to keep working through some very uncertain times. The trustees of our annuity funds saw fit to provide a COVID hardship for annuity access for members in need. We made the necessary adjustments to our Welfare Funds to see that members were able to maintain their coverage should they become infected by the virus.
