THE AGENCY WITH A HEART
A message to our Teamster members
Minnesota Job Partners is here for you during this crisis. Rest assured that our counselors will continue to provide the vital services you need to re-enter the workforce. We are resolved to get through the coronavirus together with courage and optimism.
We have three goals. First, to keep our clients and staff safe. Second, to help slow the spread of the deadly virus. Finally, to continue providing the professional support and care that you as teamster members deserve.
Here are the changes you can expect beginning March 17th:
Our staff will be working from home and our office will be closed. But you can still contact us at our work phone and email.
All meetings will happen by phone, email, or Skype – rather than in-person. Our Family & Support Specialist will continue monitoring all incoming calls and serving every teamster as effectively as possible.
Every service, benefit and assistance program we normally provide will continue to be available to all teamsters who contact the Bureau. We strive to be a resource operating at normal capacity.
We are fortunate to live in a time when modern medicine and technology make us better prepared than any previous generation to overcome this challenge. Connecting with you is what we do – and we’re confident we can do that well by phone and computer.
We are also fortunate to live in a state where steady leaders are offering support to workers. Minnesota’s Unemployment Insurance program is ready to assist workers who can’t work, workers who have had their hours reduced, and workers who have lost their jobs due to the virus. You can apply for and receive benefits immediately at www.uimn.org.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 612-676-3700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Despite the chaotic circumstances - we will get through it together.
