The International has approved the Bylaws changes that were passed by the membership in October. Effective January 2, 2019 working dues will increase to 2 ½% of gross wages for Residential, Sound & Communication and Inside Wireman as well as Apprentices and Trainees who are at Step 3 and above.
The proposed Bylaws change (Dues Increase) passed by a large margin. The changes have been sent on to the IO and must be approved prior to implementation. We are hoping to receive the approved Bylaws back from the IO for a January 1, 2019 effective date. We will notify the membership and contractors prior to implementation.
