Important Notice To: All Members of Local 721

We are starting to coordinate with the International to process the recently approved motion to pay 7 months dues for all Journey persons and apprentices as well as the 6 months dues for all Honorary.
We have just recently finished the Cheque portion of the motion for all lifetime and honorary members. If you have not received this cheque it should arrive soon.
Please be advised that if you are suspended prior to the dues being processed you will not be entitled to any of the above. So please do you part to make sure your caught up on your dues.
We recommend your dues be paid till at least the end of December 2021 to be safe and not miss this opportunity.
Reason being is without looking at each individual members record we cannot guarantee where you stand.
There are currently 843 members behind on there dues. Should this process take one or two months we currently have almost 200 members going suspended or over 300 by February.
As a reminder you are in good standing if no more than one month behind. Almost 25% of members are not in good standing.
On behalf of the officers, staff, and our membership wishing everyone happy and safe holidays, merry Christmas and happy new year
Luiz Barros
IW Local 721 President
