Member Reinstatement Policy
Per the UBC, beginning January 1, 2020 the policy on member reinstatement has changed. Please see below the changes that have been implemented.
Members in Suspended Status may only Re-instate one-time per Initiation Date.
- Once a member is behind 6 months in their monthly union dues, their membership will then be put into Suspended Status.
- Effective 1/1/2020 you can Re-instate one time by paying all back dues and will keep your current initiation date.
- The next time your membership is put in Suspended Status (due to 6 months behind in your monthly dues) your only option is to Re-initiate and receive a new initiation date.
Dropped and Resigned Status:
Members in Dropped or Resigned Status are no longer eligible to Re-instate. The only option is to re-join with a new Initiation date.
Honorary Withdrawal Status:
Members in Honorary Withdrawal status can no longer Re-instate more than once in a 3-year period. Should you have any questions regarding this information, please contact your local office.
