Local 891 Member,

Your Union is accepting donations to assist the family of Custodian Engineer Simon Kocovic (X014), who is currently in hospice care. We are asking our brothers and sisters to do whatever they can to help Simon, his wife, and four children during this difficult time.

Checks can be made payable to “Local 891 Beneficiary Fund” and forwarded to Local 891, 63 Flushing Avenue – Bldg 292 Suite 401, Brooklyn, NY 11205. In the memo section of the check, make the notation “Kocovic Family”. Donations are considered tax-deductible.  Local 891 will match each donation dollar for dollar.

Your help is most appreciated.

If you are presented with any Room Change Request Form, except this one, We asked you contact us ASAP. Use the form in the link above.

Local 891 Member,

I have been in contact with the Commissioner of Labor Relations as well as the Commissioner of DCAS to voice my concern over the large number of disqualifications sent by DCAS regarding Custodian Exam 9013. DCAS claims 51% of the candidates received disqualifications.

At this time we are urging those that received disqualifications to file an appeal. Use the guidelines we sent yesterday. Please share this information with your staff members, friends or family that took the exam and were disqualified.

If you have any questions on how the appeal process should be handled contact us at education@local891.com

Regards,
Robert

I.U.O.E. General President James T. Callahan swore in the newly elected Officers to their three year terms as well as the recently hired Custodian Engineers into Local 891. This was the first time (as long as anyone can remember) that the General President of the I.U.O.E. was present at an 891 meeting.

New York State Senator John Liu spoke about his admiration and appreciation of Local 891

Thank you for the tremendous turnout! Both General President Callahan and Senator Liu were impressed by the attendance last night.
