As of October 1st, Local 333 we will be a CASHLESS office. Therefore, options for payment will be: Check, Money Order, Credit or Debit card. Please be aware that only the cardholder may utilize the credit/debit card feature Local 333 now offers for dues payments. This would mean that if you are not the cardholder and cannot provide adequate proof, with driver’s license number, we will not be able to process the payment. However, if a family member or loved one would like to pay your dues with their own credit/debit card, and is able to provide proof, we will be happy to process on behalf of the member. This policy is designed to protect the cardholder from any fraudulent activity.

Please be advised that if using credit and debit cards, and you’re in a position of soon to be suspended (3 months behind), you will need to have your payment in by the last day of the month prior to the suspension date.

Know of anyone leaving town before the election or during election week?? Please make sure that person has their absentee ballot. Every vote counts! We will have a list of candidates that Local 333 has endorsed.
