The Membership Meeting on June 9th has been canceled.  


The Union Hall roof is more than 25 years since last replacement.  A Union contractor inspected the roof.  It has three existing layers.  Water has penetrated the top layers but wood appears to be dry.  The estimate for full strip and replacement is very competitive.  In addition, the A/C part of our HVAC system is very old and needing replaced.  We are working on getting a replacement proposal.

Please contact the Union Hall with any questions.

In accordance with Ohio's guidelines for Office environments, please contact your Division Representative to make an appointment prior to coming to the Union Hall.  Union Hall numbers can be found on this website under the CONTACT US tab.
