This message concerns the members who were furloughed from the Shell Pa. Chemical project due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In these uncertain times it is recommended that you put your name on the Out-of-Work List, out of an abundance of caution. The project is slowly starting to recall members, however it is very possible that the total craft numbers will be greatly reduced moving forward. Stay safe,  Tom Melisko
