Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Elections are coming up soon. If there is anything our current political era could teach us, it is this: Elections have consequences; elections matter. We as voters can make a big impact on what happens here locally. Please take the time to visit the AFL-CIO link to see the 2018 endorsements of local candidates in your area.
The last day to request an absentee ballot is September 22nd, 2018.
Electronic Reciprcal Transfer System
Are You Registered On ERTS?
If you are working in the jurisdiction of another Local Union either by taking a dispatch or sent by your employer you must check in with their Business Office and be registered on the Electronic Reciprocal Transfer System (ERTS). ERTS will ensure that your pension and health care benefits are transferred according to your wishes. Failure to do so will result in your benefits being left in the Local Union whose jurisdiction you worked. Please verify with your Local Union to ensure you are registered.
Keep track of your hours and please remember that the reciprocoty process takes two months.
