Update as of May 12, 2020

Due to the state's mandate on the amount of people who can assemble and not knowing the status of The Slovak Home, the Executive Board has decided to cancel the June 8, 2020 union meeting. We need to send out notice of nominations for our upcoming election 20 days prior to the meeting date. The uncertainty of the assembly mandate and our requirement of 20 days notice has caused this cancellation. We are hoping that the state will loosen the restrictions on how many people can assemble together early enough to allow us to get the notice out within our 20 day window for the July 2020 meeting.
