Dear Fellow Handlers,
We hope this finds everyone and their families healthy and safe. In these extremely trying times, we are going to encourage all members who have had their hours significantly reduced or have none at all to seek unemployment benefits.
We have been in contact with MSA management who have been working extremely hard to pave the way for every member in every state to be able to keep their K-9 companion, collect their training pay, stipend, and be able to collect unemployment benefits.
For that, we thank MSA management for the time and effort it took to work this out.
Please stay safe and healthy,
The Union Board
