(844) 4646 AWARE

Dear Member,

We are proud to announce and make you aware of Local 46’s Member Assistance Program (MAP). The Officers of our Union, along with the Employer Trustees have implemented a new level of support for you and your family.  Surely we all recognize the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse within our personal lives and in the workplace.  Billy Cruze, Jimmy Callahan, and Patrick Buckley will be administering our program with assistance from Mary Fogarty and Local Link.  Their dedication to helping everyone in our Union provides the necessary stimulus to transform our program and bring it to a higher level.

Beginning today, you can call the above referenced toll-free number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get necessary support for yourself or a loved one.  All calls will be held in the strictest confidence.  You need not worry that ANY information received will be shared with ANYONE concerning your situation.

In the upcoming months we will be holding educational seminars, MAP meetings and we’ll be providing necessary support in order to create a more healthy environment for you at work and at home.

I am personally grateful to our Union Trustees and Alternates Mike Anderson, Ronnie Richardson, Kevin Kelly, John Coffey and John Skinner.  I also want to thank Employer Trustees Mike Salgo, Kevin O’Brien and Mike Smith.  Without everyone stepping up to the plate together the necessary improvements to our program would have never been possible.

In brotherhood,

TM Signature 1

Dear Brothers & Sisters of Local 46,

The Member Assistance Associates will be holding an informal support meeting for members that might need help with drugs and alcohol.  Members in recovery are encouraged to join us and to bring along another member who might need some assistance.  The meetings will be strictly confidential.

Our meetings will be held at the Training Center on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, at 10:00am, beginning on October 15th.  The next meeting will be on October 29th.  A light breakfast will be served.

In Brotherhood,

Bill Cruse, Jimmy Callahan and Paddy Buckley
