IMPORTANT ARTICLE TO READ AND UNDERSTAND

 

Amendment Article 12-24 states, that the Recording Secretary shall maintain an attendance book and the book shall be signed by each member at each meeting he attends.  This book will also be used to record the excused absences of officers and stewards for the purpose of reimbursing dues.  No members name shall be entered in the book by another person except as permitted or required by these By-laws, the Constitution, or policies of the International Brotherhood, or any applicable law.  An officer or steward who does not attend the monthly meeting for any personal illness, union duties, regular employment under a contract between the union and his employer, or some other unavoidable situation, shall present to the President on or before the next monthly meeting, his written reason for non-attendance at the meeting he missed.  If his reason is acceptable to the President and approved by a simple majority of the membership present, his name shall be entered in the book for each such meeting with a notation that his absence has been excused, and the President shall report this action at the next regular meeting and be so recorded in the meeting minutes.

In the process of revising the by-laws, it was decided by the members to increase the field dues by .5% bringing the total amount of field dues to 5% of gross income. This change will become effective on January 1, 2013. Contractors will be notified by our office. Please contact the hall if you have any questions.

WAGE AND BENEFIT CHANGE
 
Effective October 1, 2017, the wage and benefit information will change as follows:

Wage increase of $2.00, with $1.00 going towards the organizing fund.
 

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

 

On average, it is costing the Hall $130 a month for members to be able to pay their dues with a credit or debit card. While we would like to continue this service, something needs to be done to help offset the cost. The issue was discussed during the August and September union meeting,and it was decided that starting January 1, 2012, members will be charged a service fee of $3.00 per transaction to help recover some of the cost for offering this service. If you have any questions, please call the hall.

**UPDATE** - Starting July 1, 2016 the hall will increase the service fee to $6.00 per transaction.
