In the event of a layoff, Pierre will sign the book for each person to avoid people coming in to sign the book. In order to have a fair system, the call-in procedure is as follows:
Local 4 members who are laid off must call the OFFICE at 508-835-1150, ext. 12, and leave a message beginning at 3:30 p.m. on the day of their layoff. Do NOT call prior to 3:30 p.m. and do NOT leave the message on Pierre's cell. He will record the time of each call and record each individual's name on the out-of-work list in the order in which the call was received.
If you have questions regarding this matter, please call Pierre on his cell. Failure to follow these rules may result in your name not being recorded!
You can now pay your dues using your credit card. You will be charged the convenience fee of $1.22 per month charged.
Dues Payment Reminder
Keeping track of your union dues payments is a simple as marking a calendar and it prevents a lot of needless trouble for members and the union office staff alike.
All too often members fall into dues delinquency, and incur additional costs upon themselves, not because of long term financial difficulties, but simply through poor record keeping.
But whatever the reason, falling behind on your monthly dues is bad news; and members have to follow the rules of the United Association to return to good standing.
Any member who falls more than three months behind in dues payments automatically becomes delinquent. NO notification is required. Delinquent members are not entitled to any union rights, privileges or monetary benefits. (See UA Constitution booklet, page 103, Sec. 157.)
