On January 1, 2020 we will be increasing dues by $2.00 per month, bringing the new quarterly total to $300.00.
WHY ARE DUES INCREASING?
Per Article X of our International Constitution, Members of all Locals are required to pay a minimum of 2-and-a-half times their hourly rate in the form of monthly dues payments.
Our dues, in turn, go up every year by the amount of our wage increases. As you already know, many Teamster Locals outside of Hollywood charge 3% of their Members gross wages in dues. That would be far more costly to our Members. We want to be clear that we would never contemplate changing our structure, but we believe it helps put our dues structure into perspective.
We will be updating the new dues amount online on January 1st. If you are currently subscribed to our recurring payment plan you will be contacted via email to confirm the new amount that will be automatically updated on your card. Also, if you prepaid your dues for the year, you will receive a notice from the Local with the amount still owed.
If you have any further questions, please email email@example.com or call 818-985-7374.
Keep in mind, we do not bill for your dues. Our Members are expected to pay dues quarterly in the months of January, April, July & October.
