Our staff have remained our
and we know they’ve also been a priority to our sustaining members.
Keeping employees paid, staying current on our rent and continuing to pay the bills has been possible, albeit difficult. The
collective support of our community
, cash reserves, federal PPP COVID funding, and now state/federal unemployment funding have all helped us get where we are today - preparing to rebuild and re-open
stronger than before
As of May 24, we transitioned to state and federal unemployment benefits for many of our staff - including 23 furloughs, 3 lay-offs and other reductions in pay. This decision was not easy or taken lightly. However, we know that our staff are in a
better position today
to benefit from government safety nets that were not as reliable or available 10-12 weeks ago. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to help
bridge that gap
for our employees.
As we begin to reopen and as the business needs of Edgeworks return, we are hopeful that we will be able to
restore all staff
to their previous positions. We expect some positions to restart immediately (some are already being brought back to help prep for reopening), and others to resume within the different
stages of our reopening
Until then, your membership dollars will
continue to support payroll
for our remaining staff and aid in our reopening as we work to prepare the gym with an all new set of
community health guidelines
. We continue to be
to each and every one of the 880 members who have stuck with us throughout this time. Your support makes our reopening plan possible.
Stay safe + be kind to one another.
We hope to see you soon.
