Union Dues Increase

Union Dues for Local 247 members will be increasing by $0.25 a week. At the 2008 International Convention, delegates approved an increase of $1 a month per member in the per capita tax that the Local Union remits to the International Union. Currently, the Local pays the International $13.54 a month/ per member.

Under normal circumstances, if the Local Union and its Executive Board decides an increase in the dues is warranted, it must be passed by a vote of the membership. Dues increases based on Per Capita increases may be passed on to the members without any such vote. Letters have been mailed to the various employers and most members will see the change before the end of January.

The Local is also reviewing Bargaining Units where previous increases may have been deferred and those members will be notified of any additional increases that may apply.
