If you have recently gotten laid off from work, please consider getting a withdrawal card. Your dues must be paid through the month you received your lay-off. If your employer has been deducting dues and has deducted for the lay-off month, please do the following:
Write your name, last 4 digits of your social security number, the company you worked for and let us know you are laid off and the date. Send the request in along with $0.50. When we receive your dues, we will post the withdrawal card and mail it to you. When you are called back to work, just return the withdrawal card and let us know where you are working. You start re-paying dues then. By getting the withdrawal it puts your dues on hold so you don't have to pay while you are off and prevents you from going delinquent and having to pay a reinitiation fee.
If you are pipeline and want to put your name back on the books, go the the "Out of Work Application" tab at the top of the home page on this website and complete the application. Do not register for the website thinking that will do it. You must complete the application.
