I am not working / I was laid off, what do I do now?
We ask that you immediately come to our office located at 20 Carter Street REAR, Tewksbury, MA 01876 and sign our Out of Work List. It is a list that we keep on hand at Local 1421 of our unemployed members, we call members in the order that they have signed. You will sign your name, best telephone # to reach you at, and all your licenses/certs that you hold. We will call you when we have work for you, meanwhile if you work more than 80 hours you will be removed from the out of work list and you will have to come in and sign the book again when done working. You will also be removed from the Out of Work List if you are suspended, if you get more than two months behind in your dues you will be suspended.
Why was I suspended?
You become suspended when you are more than two months behind in your membership dues. Monthly dues are currently $40/month, and you are allowed to pay multiple months in advance if you prefer to do so instead of month to month. To prevent suspensions from happening, we offer you multiple ways to pay. You can pay in person in our office 8am-4pm Monday - Friday (we close 12:30-1:30 for lunch) . You can also sign up for auto dues as well by calling our office ext 4 to speak to Gail, you can leave a card on file with us and once a month we will debit your monthly dues and mail you a receipt automatically. If you are suspended, you will have to pay the months that you owe along with a readmission fee in order to be active for work/trainings. If you do not pay within a year of your last paid through date, you will be terminated.
How can I pay my dues if I cannot make it during open office hours?
You can pay over the phone by calling our office 8am-4pm Monday-Friday (we close 12:30-1:30 for lunch) 978-640-9010, we have options for both English and Spanish. You can also sign up for auto dues as well by calling our office, you can leave a card on file with us and once a month we will debit your monthly dues and mail you a receipt automatically.
