It is every member’s obligation to maintain their monthly dues.
To remain a member in good standing and be eligible for the International accidental death and dismemberment as well as the Local 504 Death Benefit YOU MUST have your dues paid in advance of the month. For example, this means your AUGUST monthly dues must be paid BEFORE the end of JULY. As dues are part of being a UNION member it is a good idea to stay ahead in your dues at all time. This keeps you in good standing and makes you eligible for all benefits.
- Dues can be paid at the office by Cash, Cheque or money order.
- Dues can be mailed into the office payable by cheque or money order.
- You can send post dated cheques which we will hold and cash as dated.
Dues will be deducted by your employer and sent into the office. Your employer will not deduct dues on the third week of each month if you have no hours that week. When you are not working, either though lay-off , on holidays, etc… You must insure you are paid in advance of one month.
As per our Constitution under Constitution, Article 16, Section 11,
Any member who becomes two months in arrears with their dues shall be recorded as suspended (no longer member) by the International and Local Union.
