Drive-Thru to Beat the Flu & Covid-19 – 10/2/21

In anticipation of an active flu season amidst a global pandemic, the Hawaii State AFL-CIO’s Labor Community Services Program, My Health Solutions, and partners have once again organized a drive-thru vaccination clinic.  It will be held at Kaka’ako Waterfront Park on Saturday, October 2, 2021, from 8 a.m.-12:00 p.m.  500 flu shots have been purchased by LCSP for those who are uninsured and DOH will use Kaiser to administer Covid19 vaccinations. Both vaccinations will be offered to support those with or without insurance. Immunizing as many persons as possible against influenza during this pandemic could help reduce some of the demands our hospital systems are experiencing. Please see the attached for you to post on social media or your websites and get the word out of this free benefit to your membership.

Participants in cars are asked to enter the event from Ward Avenue and Ala Moana Boulevard.  Walk-ups are allowed.  All participants must wear a face mask and bring these items to receive your flu and/or Covid19 shot.  Drive-The to Beat the Flu & Covid-19 clinic is open to everyone with or without insurance. 

Completing the consent forms and providing the photocopies before arriving at the events will help to expedite the process.

The flu shots will be provided on a first-come-first-served basis until supplies last.

  1. Completed FLU and/or COVID19 Vaccination Questionnaire and Consent Form
  2. Photocopy of your Government-issued ID and Medical Insurance (if you have insurance)
  3. Must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian if under 18 years of age
  4. COVID19 shot record (if you have received previous doses of Pfizer or Moderna)

The following criteria must be met for the following vaccinations:

  •  3 years or older for flu shots 
  • 12 years and older for Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty) covid19 shot: 2nd dose given 3 weeks after 1st, *booster (*will be based on current CDC guidelines) given 8 months after 2nd dose
  • 18 years and older for Moderna covid19 shot: 2nd shot given 4 weeks days after 1st dose, *booster (*will be based on current CDC guidelines) given 8 months after 2nd dose
  • 18 years and older for Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) covid19 shot: 1 dose

This clinic is brought to you thanks to a partnership between the Hawai’i State AFL-CIO’s Labor Community Services Program and My Health Solutions.  Additional assistance was provided by sponsors: Accredo, Evergreen Adult Day Care Center, HOME Project, HMSA Hawai’i, JABSOM, Kaiser Permanente, Palama Super Market, and Safety Systems. Please contact My Health Solutions for additional medical information relating to this clinic at (808) 294-1399 or myself on all other questions.

Safe Access Oahu Program – What Does This Mean For You?

Starting on Monday, September 13, 2021, the “Safe Access Oahu” program will require customers to show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within the previous 48 hours in order to enter businesses, such as restaurants, bars, gyms, movie theaters, museums, arcades and other similar establishments on Oahu.

Below are frequently asked questions about the types of businesses that will need to comply with this mandate. 

Important things to note:

Any business that is not required to participate in the “Safe Access Oahu” program can still voluntarily participate.   This means that any business (such as a clothing store) can adopt these rules and require that their customers show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter their business.

Any business that is required to comply with this program can adopt stricter rules if they so choose to.  This means that in addition to showing proof of vaccination or a negative test, they can require extra things such as temperature checks, etc. before entering their business.

What types of entities need to ask for proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test?

●      Certain types of indoor entertainment, recreation, dining and fitness establishments are required to check that their visitors and staff are vaccinated.

What types of entertainment and recreational settings are required to comply?

●      Bowling alleys, arcades, pool/billiard halls, movie theaters, museums, other recreational game or entertainment centers, and the indoor portions of botanical gardens, aquariums, zoos, sea life attractions, commercial recreational boating, public and private commercial pools, shooting/archery ranges, and other commercial attractions (cultural attractions, go kart, mini golf).

●      If a venue has both indoor and outdoor portions, only the indoor portion is covered by the emergency order requirements.

What types of restaurants and bars are required to comply with the emergency order?

●      The following are required to comply, unless they offer take-out or delivery only:

○      Any establishments offering food and/or drink for on premises consumption; businesses operating seating areas of food courts; catering food service establishments that provide food/beverages for on premises consumption; and any food service establishment that is regulated by the State of Hawaii, Department of Health offering food/beverages for on-premises consumption.

○      The requirements of this emergency order shall not apply to any food service establishment offering food and/or drink exclusively for off-premises consumption, or to a food service establishment providing charitable food services (shelters, soup kitchens, etc.)

Does a food retailer such as a grocery store, food court, or other food market need to check proof of vaccine?

●      Only for patrons who use an area for seated indoor eating. For example, a grocery store or food court that provides tables and chairs for patrons to sit and eat inside must check proof of vaccination for any patrons who use that area, if the business chooses to keep that area open.

What types of fitness establishments and group physical activities are required to comply?

●      Standalone and hotel gyms and fitness centers, yoga/Pilates/barre/dance studios, boxing/kickboxing gyms, fitness boot camps, indoor pools, and other similar facilities.

*Note: “Group fitness classes” are defined as one (1) or more participants led by an instructor.

Can a business that is not covered by the requirements of the Safe Access Oahu program still participate?

Yes! Any business is welcome to set COVID-safety protocols as they see fit. Please note, they can be stricter than the current City rules but cannot be less strict. For example:

●      Businesses covered by Safe Access Oahu can adopt stricter rules if they want.

●      Businesses not covered by Safe Access Oahu can adopt these rules (or more) if they want.

Does the emergency order apply to indoor dining, entertainment and fitness settings in residences or offices? Indoor dining, entertainment and fitness located in the following settings are exempted from the emergency order:

○      Private residential buildings when those settings are available only to residents.

○      Office buildings when those settings are available only to office staff; non-staff cannot be allowed on premises

○      Pre-K through grade 12 schools

○      Senior centers

○      Community Centers

○      Child care programs

Does the emergency order apply to purely retail establishments that do not have indoor dining, such as clothing and toy stores?

●      No. If an establishment is purely retail and does not have dining facilities, a fitness center, or other facilities included in the emergency order, then the establishment is not required to check for proof of vaccination.

Retirement Announcement

It is with sadness but warm wishes that we announce the retirement of Executive Director Myles Miyasato.  His last working day was May 31, 2021. 

Myles, a 32 year Local 3 member, has been an integral part of the Hawaii Operating Engineers for the last 17 years.  He started out as the Big Island Representative, then became the Senior Compliance Representative before becoming the Executive Director.  We are indebted to his vision and commitment for taking us to the next level in the continued growth and success of this office.   Our construction industry has been positively impacted by our actions under Myles’ leadership. 

Although he will be missed, he has more than earned the right to spend more time with his loved ones.  Myles’ retirement is our loss but well-deserved for him and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WORKER’S DAY

Yes, we know September 1 is Labor Day but May 1 is International Worker’s Day and not only is it celebrated around the world by different countries, but it is also the original “Labor’s Day” and it started here, in the United States. This date was symbolic, commemorating the Haymarket affair, which took place in Chicago, in the United States, in 1886.

On May 1, 1886, the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada decided to protest and go on strike. Tired of being forced to work up to 16 hours a day in unsafe conditions, between 300,000 and 500,000 US workers went on strike in cities and towns across the U.S.

In Chicago, there was an estimated 40,000 people protesting in a well-coordinated and largely nonviolent strike. However, on May 4, in Chicago’s Haymarket Square, a bomb was thrown at the police, killing seven of them and at least four civilians.Police subsequently rounded up and arrested eight anarchists, all of whom were convicted of conspiracy. A court sentenced seven to death and one to 15 years imprisonment. Four were hanged, one committed suicide rather than face the gallows and two had their sentences commuted to life in prison. Those who died are regarded by as the “Haymarket Martyrs”.

In 1889, the Second International, the international organization for workers and socialists, declared that May 1 would from then on be International Workers’ Day.

Operating Engineers Members Organize Toy Run For Kapiolani Medical Center

The Kapiolani Medical Center received dozens of brand new toys yesterday by over 70 motorcycle riders to give out to the little patients that come into the hospital. Local 3, District 17 members organized the toy run as a way to give back to the community during these unprecedented times. The drive coordinator was Local 3 member Michael Akau, who is also the State Administrator for the Hawaii Operating Engineers Journeymen and Apprentice Training Center (OE3 JATC).

“It’s important for use to give back,” said Michael Akau.

“We feel construction has been essential, and we’re blessed to be able to continue working. So it’s our way with our motorcycle community to give back to the keiki.”

We are proud of all of our union members that participated in this event and other volunteer events and thank them for going over and beyond during these uncertain times.

URGENT. Maui Council is planning to pass a bill that will produce less housing projects on Maui. We need your voice to stop Bill 10!

How does this affect you?

  • Passing Bill 10 means less housing, less jobs and more locals moving out of Maui.
  • This bill means less jobs for our members. If our members do not have jobs, everyone loses (retail, restaurants, etc). 
  • It means more members will look to the government for financial assistance.
  • Maui has a housing shortage.  Less affordable housing projects mean less places for our members and local people to live on Maui.

What can you do to stop this?
Submit your testimony against Bill 10 here: https://maui.bluejeans.com/295235670
