The Executive Board of Teamsters Local 814 has voted to delay IDS suspensions until June 15th, 2020. In the meantime, you can make a dues payment at 814work.com, or by calling 718-609-6407. The phones are on and will be answered weekdays between 8 am and 4 pm.
Many members have asked about the Union waiving dues payments for April and May of 2020. The Intentional Brotherhood of Teamsters (“IBT”) has instructed the Locals to ask for permission BEFORE waiving any dues from this time period. Local 814 has sent a letter to the IBT requesting permission to waive dues for members who did not work at all during the months of April or May.
We will let you know when we receive a response to our request, but in the meantime we will not be able to waive any dues for April or May until the IBT grants us permission. As soon as we hear back from them, we will let you know.
In the meantime, stay strong, stay safe.
