Safety Rides & Rooms Initative (PDF)
How does it work? Local 600 will reimburse members who pay for a ride (round-trip when necessary) or a room when they find themselves too tired to drive home safely. For rides, UBER, LYFT, a taxi or a car service, or a designated driver service that will drive your car to your home are acceptable, and two-way transportation is eligible. When a ride is not available, a nearby motel or hotel not to exceed $200 is eligible. Read more about Rides & Rooms.
"Take the Room" Bag (PDF)
Under the Basic, Low Budget, AICP, Videotape, Pay TV and Area Standards Agreements, rooms or rides are mandatory after 14 hours (15 under the AICP) worked. In 2018, the Committee for the Future (presently known as the Active Engagement Committee) recognized that there was a need and initiated the Take the Room (or Ride) campaign. The Local 600 Safety Committee encourages members to TAKE THE ROOM and has created these bags for members to stock their essentials in preparation for taking the room. Learn more about the bags here
