Recently you received an email in your company email from “Dlearn”. We know many of you had concerns such as – Is this a malware file, etc. Some of you may have deleted this email thinking just that. If you did delete this email please ask your manager to have it resent. This email is a notice requiring you to take two training courses provided by the Company. After a discussion between the Union and the Company, the Union has agreed to these training requirements .Both courses are setup for you to take online. The best course of action for you is to talk to your Manager and set up a time for you to take the courses on Company time. If you do not have access to Company email or a computer ask your Manager for information on how to proceed in that case. If you do not get a proper response, talk to your Union Representative.

Arthur Mazzacca, by receiving the majority of votes is hereby re-elected President of NABET-CWA Local 16.
Sadly, NABET Local 16 member Alan Zapata has passed away. He was a much admired and loved member of the Audio Group. Alan started at ABC in January 2001 as an Audio Engineer DH and became staff at ABC in 2006.
He will be sincerely missed. Alan asked that there not be any elaborate funeral, and his family has set up a crowd source funding page to help his widow and their two week old son. A memorial service is anticipated for this spring. The link for the fund is www.youcaring.com/rebeccacapuaandlionelcarloszapata-747577
Rest in Peace Alan.
