UA Notice Regarding Monthly Dues for Unemployed Members
Securing relief for UA members and their families who have been impacted by the COVID-19 is among the greatest priorities at the International level. While the job losses arising from COVID-19 are still a relatively recent occurrence, many of our brothers and sisters nation-wide are already feeling the financial effects and virtually all members are looking to the future with at least some sense of uncertainty. Because of this, the UA has sent notice to all local unions regarding the monthly dues payment.
For the months of April and May 2020, and thereafter on a month to month basis at the direction and discretion of UA General President Mark McManus and General Secretary Treasurer Patrick Kellett, Local Unions shall cover the fixed monthly dues ($31.00) of all non retired members who performed 40 or fewer hours of UA work in the previous calendar month. For example, if a member performed only 32 hours of UA work in March, his or her monthly dues for April shall be covered by the Local Union. Non-retired members who qualify for the relief will be credited for the eligible months.
