Dear Fellow Handlers,
I hope this finds you and your loved ones healthy during these troubling times.
As I am sure you are realizing, the downturn of many businesses across the nation due to the Covid-19 pandemic has also affected MSA and many of MSA’s customers.
MSA approached the union asking for their assistance in light of MSA’s downturn in business due to Covid-19. We understood and agreed to the payout set forth by MSA with the stipulation that all handlers would be able to use their 2019 accrued PTO as vacation time NOW. We encourage you to use your earned 2019 PTO time in the upcoming months.
Please keep your family healthy and safe and please wear a mask.
