Becoming a Member
Any worker whose usual full or part-time work is covered by the jurisdiction of the union may apply for membership by signing the prescribed application form and by paying the initiation fee.
When a demand is made upon the Union to supply workers on a temporary basis, in excess of the numbers normally required to meet the Union's contracts, it shall be the prerogative of the Union to dispatch workers as prospective members. Those so dispatched shall pay an amount equal to regular monthly dues and assessments for the period they are temporarily under the jurisdiction of the Union. Should a prospective member be employed and pay dues for a period of three months, he/she may be inducted into full membership upon payment of the initiation fee.
