Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This is to inform you that our monthly meeting is canceled until further notice, due to the COVID-19 public health crisis and our government order against gatherings. As always, the safety of our members and your families is our top priority. We will keep you informed if there are any changes.
TeamCare has issued a detailed bulletin and Q&A with information about COVID-19, including what to do if you feel sick, testing, and eligibility for short-term disability benefits.
Local 71 members who have short-term disability benefits through Teamcare are eligible for those benefits if they are under a physician’s care for COVID-19 or have been advised by a physician, teladoc or state agency to self-quarantine.
UPS employees need to contact Aetna to report their disability.
We urge you to read the TeamCare bulletin for all the details.
