Over the course of the past month, TLMI has made a wide range of COVID-19 materials available both to its membership and to the greater North American label-printing industry. Working in close conjunction with the association’s partners, human resources firm Affinity HR Group and government relations firm PACE LLP, TLMI has bundled critical and timely resources on the association’s website and in the membership’s Engage online portal.
North American label converters can find timely COVID-related announcements and guidance on www.tlmi.com including Department of Labor (DOL) Guidance, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications and associated forms, and Economic Assistance Disaster Loan applications. Affinity HR Group has developed an Emergency Paid Sick Leave/Emergency FMLA form which is also available on TLMI’s website. As new information becomes available, TLMI is alerting members immediately and making online updates to ensure the greater industry also has access to critical guidance and assistance measures at this time.
Dan Muenzer, TLMI President, comments, “We’re all facing a global crisis right now and it’s more important than ever that TLMI makes resources available to ensure the health and safety of our members and of the greater North American label-printing community. Our partners at Affinity HR Group and PACE continue to provide us with weekly updates. We have also opened up a new community on our online Engage member platform that is the home base for all COVID-19 related information we are distributing in addition to a forum where companies with questions can post them in a group setting to tap into the collective experiences and actions of their industry peers. This is a time when we must all work together for the wellbeing of our employees, our businesses and our industry and TLMI is working around the clock to provide our membership and the greater industry with the tools and resources it needs.”
