The following was sent to the membership via the announce mechanism on Mar. 6th 2020 from the office of the Business Agent:
Brothers and Sisters,
I am disheartened to report that SXSW was officially canceled today by the City of Austin.
All scheduled labor for TOMORROW Saturday 3/7 will remain as scheduled. I repeat if you are scheduled tomorrow 3/7, you will still go to work as scheduled. Freeman has had gear arriving at the Austin Convention Center and we will be loading out that gear.
All scheduled labor for all areas on Sunday 3/8 through 3/21 with FREEMAN has been cancelled.
We will update you as we find out more information from our various employers.
