Please be advised that tax receipts will be going out shortly. For those of you who have not picked up your new union card they will be included along with a note on your dues status. This will serve as a final warning to those members in arrears. If you are 3 months in arrears you become a suspended member and we cannot dispatch you for work.
As of April 1, 2017 the mandatory Working at Heights legislation comes into effect. There are approximately 16 of our members who require this training. Local 628 may be able to get one course for 10 people before this date but we need your immediate response. After April 1st Local 628 cannot send out members if the job requires this ticket.
