Dues During Lay-off
During a lay-off you may chose not to pay your Union dues, but after 2 months you will be put on a “withdrawal status” from the Union.
If you are on “withdrawal” from the Union you are still protected by union and the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The union will still continue to represent you when you return to work or on any other issues required.
If you are on “withdrawal” you are not able to attend membership meetings or vote on union issues or elections.
When you return to work you will not be charged an initiation fee.
If you would like to remain a member while on lay-off, so that you can remain active with the Union, you may set up a recurring dues payment using the links on this page.
