REDUCED DUES

If you are off ill for more than one calendar month you should apply for reduced dues. Members on Work Safe BC Compensation [WCB] do not qualify for reduced dues.  Reduced dues also apply when off on Maternity or Parental Leave.

Reduced dues are not retroactive and will only take effect the month following receipt of the application form.

Click here to apply for reduced dues. Please include your first and last name, Social Insurance Number, Employer and date you last worked.

 

WITHDRAWAL CARD

Withdrawal Cards are given by the Union upon request of the member within 90 days of taking leave from the employer. Failure to request a Withdrawal Card will make you responsible for all back dues and possibly a re-initiation fee.

Your request should be submitted before the end of the month in which you last worked.

A Withdrawal Card allows a member to maintain his or her membership on an inactive basis. In other words, you will not owe union dues for any months you did not work after you obtain the Withdrawal Card. Additionally, this allows you to avoid paying a re-initiation fee when you return to employment.

Testimonial

“I look after a lot of members in a very big plant. For years I had to fight for them by myself with no help at all from any of the Union’s representatives or Officers. This changed completely once Bobby, Bob and Paul were in office. Now I have access to my reps 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  They’re always there to back me up.”

"I was a Shop Steward and was also on the contract negotiation team. The Union took the time and trouble to learn all about our industry and what we do. This means they are better able to fight for us whether it is on the job or at the bargaining table. We have the best contract in our industry. Thanks guys!"
