Union dues are tax deductible and official tax receipts are mailed to members on an annual basis. If you need a copy of your dues receipts, please contact our office.
Monthly dues are currently $42 per month and, as determined at the LIUNA International Convention in 2021.
As per Article VIII, Section 4 of the International Union Constitution, "Monthly dues are due on the first day of the month and unless paid on or before the last day of the following month, the member shall be deemed suspended by the International Union without notice. A member shall not be subject to suspension for an employer's failure to remit the member's dues to the Union where the member has executed a valid voluntary dues checkoff authorization card and where the employer has deducted those dues from the member's wages."
Please be aware that should a member be suspended for non-payment of dues there is a costly fee that will have to be paid if the member wishes to be re-admitted, with the readmission penalty increasing monthly to a maximum of 12 months after which a member will not be allowed to readmit. In addition to the costly fees, a member will lose his position on the out-of-work list and will go to the bottom of the list once re-admission fees are paid.
In order for a member to be dispatched, monthly dues must be paid for the month in which he/she is dispatched. It is very important to keep your dues current.
**Please Note** we will not be accepting cash for payment of dues, however, you can pay via debt, credit card, cheque, or money order. Thank You for your co-operation and please stay safe.
