From the Geneal Chairman:


"Please notify your members that CMS is recalling AWTS and furloughed employees.  If they do not wish to return before 15 days off of the furlough board, they need to pull all bids they have outstanding.  If they are furloughed and have a standing bid that is awarded, they are expected to protect their job that day.  AWTS employees have 48 hours to mark up, period."  
If you have any questions, give your Local Chairman a call.
