  • Maintaining Good Standing with the Union When Away from Work
    Updated On: Nov 08, 2021

    Expecting a furlough, long leave of absence or other period off work coming up? Your dues may not get deducted from your payroll, which can cause issues with your Good Standing in the Union, limiting your ability to:

    • Take a seat and conduct business at your Local Lodge (BMWED Bylaws – Article XV, Sec. 5, Article XVI, Sec. 2, & Article XVII, Sec. 6-8). This includes voting on any upcoming ballots or elections!
    • Run for and hold elected office within the Union (BMWE-IBT Merger Agreement Section 4.9).

    There are options to maintain Good Standing with the Union and preserve your rights and benefits as an Active member, but we can't assist you in doing this if we don't know you are furloughed or on a leave of absence! While the railroads are required to send us updates and status reports on our members, these are often incomplete, arrive out-of-date, or come in too late for us to make adjustments to your deductions. An easy, 5-minute phone call to your System office will help us track your status and help keep you in Good Standing to exercise your rights as an Active member!

    If you know you will be going on furlough or have time away from work, UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM OFFICE AS SOON AS YOU CAN to learn what options you have to maintain Good Standing.
