The Local Union has received notice from the International that “the General Executive Board determined at its May 3, 2018 meeting that [an increase of] $0.50 [per member per month] would be necessary at this time to protect and preserve the interests and welfare of the International Union. This determination was based on the recommendation of the International Board of Trustees in conjunction with the financial projections presented at the meeting. Therefore, effective July 1, 2018, the Per Capita Tax rate will increase from $12.75 to $13.25 per member per month.”
All Local 963 members should have received a letter with a web link to the Provincial Bargaining Survey. For those who prefer a paper copy of the survey, these are available by calling the union office at 604-876-6287. All surveys are due April 16, 2018. Your input is appreciated.
