FYI on Members Only Log-In for Local 63 Website

Just an FYI.

At this time, there is no “Member’s Only” content on the Local 63 Website, so therefore, no need to attempt log-in on the website.  In the future, if this changes, Local 63 will notify the membership.

On the other hand, the Local 63 smart phone app is restricted to Local 63 members and retirees only and Local 63, from time to time, may send time sensitive messages (“push notifications”) to the membership using that tool.
