To the Members of Sprinkler Fitters Union Local 281, U.A.
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
I would like to remind you that the regular monthly meeting of Sprinkler Fitters Union Local 281, U.A. being held on Thursday, September 5, 2019 will begin at 6:30 p.m. instead of 7:00 p.m. Please note the change in time. The meeting will be held at the Sprinkler Fitters Union Local 281, U.A. Union Hall, 11900 S. Laramie Avenue, Alsip, Illinois. The Chicago Bears first regular season game starts at 7:20 p.m. We will be broadcasting the game after the meeting. Refreshments will be served. Please wear your Bears apparel.
I am also writing to clarify changes that have been and will be made at our regular monthly meetings. We will be adding a few rituals over the next few months. This is to ensure that our regular monthly meeting reflects the Ritual of the United Association. Some of these rituals will include:
1. Additional dialogue between the President and Vice-President at the start of the meeting
2. An insignia to be posted on the outside main entrance stating that the meeting is in progress
3. All other entrances to the meeting hall will be securely closed
The main entrance will be manned during the meeting to accommodate any members arriving late. No member shall be denied access to the meeting! The purpose of the monitored entrance is to minimize disruption during the meetings.
Thank you in advance for your understanding in the implementation of the Ritual of the United Association.
