Local 24 designed the Contract Program Booklet as a way to better connect with our members and to help kick off contract negotiations for 2015.
These booklets can be obtained from your Shop Steward or Union Organizer. They will also be available at all Union meetings or can be picked up at each of the Union offices. Please help us keep your contact information current.
Lastly, “GET CONNECTED”! Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram and sign up to be on our text list, by filling out the form to the right or texting Local 24 to 877877, then reply to a few questions to help us update our records.
Local 24 has developed an Informational Orientation Booklet for our members, which gives a short overview of the following:
- What your Union is all about
- Membership and Dues Responsibilities
- TIP Campaign Committee
- Programs offered by Local 24
- Membership meeting dates
- Local 24 phone directory
Local 24 Organizers will be passing these booklets out at new member orientations. In addition, these booklets will be distributed at all Union meetings or can be picked up at each of the Union offices. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this booklet, please contact your Union Organizer.
Please check our Union Downtown Detroit Hospitality Guide and help support Union Workers and Working Families.
It is important to be a responsible member of Local 24 by ensuring your membership information is accurate. This does not only include contact information such as changes in name, address or phone number. It is just as important to keep your dues current.
As of January 2011, monthly dues are $46.00 and initiations are $90.00 for all classifications. There may be times when you employer is unable to deduct the total amount of dues, initiations or reinstatement fees from your check. For example, you may have been on vacation, or on a leave of absence the week the deduction are normally taken out. Or the employer may have forgotten to deduct the prober amount. It is your responsibility to keep your dues membership current. This may require a simple phone call to the dues department to inquire about your account.
We are constantly updating the Union’s dues records. If we receive notice that you are not working for longer than a calendar month, we will automatically put you on withdrawal from Union membership. This will save you money; however, being on withdrawal affects your ability to attend membership meetings, vote and run for union office. If you do not want to be put on withdrawal automatically, you must let us know. Automatic withdrawal only applies to eligible members. If you have been receiving dues statements from the Union or if you have a past dues balance, you may not qualify for withdrawal. If you would like more information on your eligibility or on how this will affect you in particular, please contact Sophia Cisneros with the dues department at 313-259-8486.
A Withdrawal Card is free to all members, who are current with their dues; but is or will be on a leave of absence (medical or personal) for one calendar month or more. A member may also request a Withdrawal Card if they are on a layoff, or is no longer working for a Union Company. The Withdrawal Card places the membership records in a hold status, which ceases the obligation of the member paying dues; this also puts the right to vote, attend meetings or otherwise participate in the activities of Local 24 on hold. After a member returns to work (from a leave of absence or is rehired) the member is required to pay the Withdrawal Card Reinstatement Fee of $67.00, which includes a $21.00 Reinstatement Fee and the current month’s dues of $46.00.
If a member does not request a Withdrawal Card, or pay dues to keep account current, their membership record may eventually be suspended. Once the membership record has been suspended, a $90.00 Reinstatement Fee is charged to all classifications.
