In the next few days all members of Local 55 will be receiving letters from Local 55 General President Dan Robertson and myself with a new membership authorization form. This new form was developed in anticipation of the Janusdecision from the Supreme Court and the potential changes that will be imposed on all Labor Unions.
The Janus case decision is anticipated to impose Right to Work provisions on the entire country. This will add layers of bureaucracy to Local 55 and this new authorization form is Local 55’s way of getting ahead of this administrative challenge.
This new form will allow Local 55 to continue to work and fight for your wages, benefits and working conditions.
The form has two sections for members to sign, union dues check off and Political Action Committee check off.
Once received, please sign both sections of the form and return it in the self-addressed stamped envelope.
We understand there will be many questions regarding this, please work with your district representative if you have any questions or need additional information.
