Ask your steward or a local officer for a Form 1187 and fill it out. Part of it must be completed by you, and part by the local. Your union dues will automatically be deducted from your pay check. You can get more information from your steward or another union officer.
Dan Van Minnen
The idea that businesses will be driven to bankruptcy if strict environmental standards are adopted is the same tired line that has been brought up again and again since workers first organized to improve working conditions. It was brought up when child labor was eliminated, when the minimum wage was introduced, when Social Security and Unemployment Insurance were developed.
