In March, the Benefit Plan Trustees established the Local 793 Emergency Relief Grant to assist eligible plan members and their families in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Local 793 Emergency Relief Grant will now be extended for the months of October to December 31, 2020 for those members who are newly affected or continue to be affected in the months of October to December 31, 2020, with the extension of $250 per week top-up for those that meet the existing criteria.

The extended Emergency Relief Grant will now expire on December 31, 2020. Additionally, the previously passed COVID-19 Life and Health Benefit Freezing is scheduled to expire September 30, 2020. Extension of “Benefit Freezing” will continue for only those members who will fall out of benefits in the months of October to December 2020 as a result of NIL (zero) contributions coming from their respective employers.
