FAQs - Unions
What union do I belong to?
The union you belong to depends on the title into which you were hired.
Do I have to join the union?
Membership in the union is voluntary. It entitles you to voting rights and the opportunity to work within the union to effect your working conditions.
What is the agency shop fee?
Although membership in the union is not mandatory, the unions provide welfare benefits for all employees working in titles covered by the union. The agency shop fee is your contribution to that coverage.
How do I join the union?
Contact your shop steward or call the union directly. If you joined but have not received your membership card, contact the member services department of your union.
