Greetings from UnionWorking,
In this time of national crisis, we want to reach out to all of our members to let you know that you are not alone.
Simply put, we don’t know what the future holds, but today, right now, we know our UnionWorking community is strong — and nothing will change that. Together We Work!
No one has ever been able to predict what tomorrow holds, but “today’s tomorrow” is truly something we have never experienced before.
Suddenly, we are all beginners; this is our Intro to Pandemic 101. It’s a strange new world and it is natural to feel frightened and helpless.
Right now, none of us have the answers, BUT WE DO HAVE EACH OTHER.
We protect ourselves by protecting each other. It has been said, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Faith and strength in numbers is exactly what we need now. If you are alone and away from family and friends, it is key to maintain personal connections.
For together, optimism is a luxury we can still afford. Together, we know this is not the end of the world, but a wake-up call for our world. Together, we will emerge stronger and better prepared for the future.
