Union Dues—The Lifeblood of The Union

Union Dues—The Lifeblood of The Union

We are a strong and vibrant union—a force to be reckoned within the Chicagoland Area. To remain strong and continue our mission to bring hope to workers everywhere, we need resources. One of the ways we grow our resources is through the collection of union dues and initiation fees.

The monthly dues you pay finance the operation of your local union, including: the upkeep of your union hall, the grievance and arbitration process, legal counsel, contract negotiations, and  organizing new members to strengthen the union.
You should know that union dues do not pay for the benefits you receive through any health and welfare fund, nor do they pay for any benefits you may be eligible to receive through a pension fund. Health and welfare funds and pension benefits are funded through contributions from participating employers according to the terms of the collective bargaining agreement in place for that location.
