      Due to a recent court case in Pennsylvania, Local 8 will be charging non-members a fee for the grievance procedure. Non-members still have a choice to join our Union and we will encourage them to do so. There is always strength in numbers! If they choose not to join, they will not get our grievance procedure/ services for free.  The fee must be paid up front for non-members to utilize the Union to process the grievance.

      No More Free Rides

      Due to the recent court decision, Local 8 will be researching the implementation of a fee schedule for non-members for Union Representation. This will end all free rides for those who choose not to join the Union. 

      Please read the document below in regards to the recent decision:
