In our continuing effort to better serve our membership, Local 488 is proud to announce the launch of our new Mobile App for smartphones! If you’ve ever heard the phrase, “There’s an App for That,” it is true there’s an app for just about anything. Technology has drastically altered the way Locals across North America do business and how they engage their membership. The Local 488 Mobile App is free and can be downloaded by going to the App Store on your Mobile phone. Simply search Local 488 and the App will download in seconds.
At Local 488, we have listened to you, the member, and recognize that your time is of the essence. The Local 488 Mobile App allows members to access information right at your fingertips. There are many benefits the App will provide to our membership. Some of these include:
- Access to Local 488 Dispatch, including Out of Work Forms
- Easy retrieval of Agreements and Forms
- The most up-to- date Local 488 news
- A contact list for all Business Agents and Local 488 Officers
- A Community Page where members can send us photos and share stories that are both work and non-work related – We want to hear from you!
- A rewards program that will feature giveaways based on General Meeting attendance, great job performance and other work in the community, such as volunteering.
The goal of the new Local 488 App is to make life easier for our members, many of whom work out of town and cannot access a desktop computer. We are continually striving to be as transparent as possible and the Mobile App is another example of Local 488 listening to our membership.
