Offices closed, meetings and Lobby Day canceled

The National Weather Service is forecasting blizzard conditions with heavy snowfall and advising no travel in much of Local 49’s territory in the next two days.

As a result, all IUOE Local 49 offices will be closed Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 22-23. Local 49 offices will reopen Friday, Feb. 24.

This week’s union meetings in Ironton, Mankato and Rochester are canceled.

Lobby Day, which was scheduled for Feb. 23 at the Minnesota Capitol, is also canceled after the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota Senate canceled floor sessions and all committee hearings except those held remotely. Local 49 will explore the possibility of rescheduling the event for a future date and will communicate with members when a decision is made.
