Basic Monthly Dues

To: All Members

Basic Monthly Dues are owed at the 1st of the month. When you are working for a Union Employer, the Employer will deduct that month and remit to the Union in the following month. If you are not working for a Union Employer it is your responsibility alone to make sure you are current. Falling behind in your monthly dues will result in termination of your membership as per BACU Constitution.

We hope that this warning will prevent such an occurrence.

Local 5 New Website by: Maxx Scholz

Maxx Scholz is launching a new set of websites for all the local unions for its parent company BACU Canada.
The main focus of this launch is to :

– Allow for members to get all membership documents online (Benifits, Dental, Wage, RRSP)
– Give the Union the opportunity to pass along information, meetings and news to the memberships with the push of a button
– Provide detailed information of each union, their past and present executives
– Connect with social media and showcase pictures from special events
– Allow potential employers to see each union in action

Please stay tuned for more to come

Yours Truly,

Maxx Scholz
