General Membership meetings are held the first Monday of every month at 7 PM, unless it falls on on holiday, which then it usually will be rescheduled for the following Monday. Call us to make sure. We recommend that every member show up to get the latest info on upcoming jobs, training classes, pickets, and other community activities which local 585 participates in.

All new Apprentices & Sponsored Journeymen will be required to attend and receive the LIUNA Membership Oath. The LIUNA Oath is more then just words - it's your commitment, a sincere promise that you will make to your Union to stay involved and dedicated to advancing the LIUNA way of life for all of its members.

Dues

Monthly Dues are now $44 per month for active members.

If you become disabled stop by the office and pick up an “Attending Physician Form” which will reduce your dues to $22 while under doctors care.

Retirees are $18 per month

The International allows sixty (60) days for payment of monthly dues and they will be strictly enforcing the suspension language found in the Union’s Constitution.

Dues payments are to be paid by the first day of the month. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, or money order. If paying by mail, include your membership card and payment. We will stamp and return same. We can currently process credit card payments via phone. Just call the hall at (805) 643-5487 and speak with one of the office staff.

*NOTE: If you have not paid your dues for a period of two months, your Secretary-Treasurer will be forced to suspend you according to the Union’s Constitution. At that point, you will have to pay $25 LATE FEE , in addition to the $44 for the months of reinstatement. If you are out for a period of one(1) year, you must pay the entire initiation fee of $588 to rejoin the Local. PLEASE DON'T LET YOUR DUES LAPSE!!!!
