Teamsters Local 493 Supports Safe Futures
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Teamsters Local 493 supports Safe Futures of New London, Connecticut, formerly the Women’s Center of Southeastern Connecticut. Safe Futures provides intervention and counseling for domestic violence and sexual assault victims. I ask that you consider donating to Safe Futures as your charity choice. We hope to save lives, restore hope, and change the future in Southeastern Connecticut. It is with pride that we keep our traditions strong and look forward to making new traditions which will keep our Local Union strong.
We wish you a Happy Spring and a safe and prosperous Summer!
Bevan J Sweet, Secretary-Treasurer
GET A WITHDRAWAL CARD WHEN YOU ARE OUT OF WORK
Be sure you request a withdrawal card when being laid-off, going on leave of absence, lengthy medical leave, or terminating your employment. The charge for a withdrawal card is still only $.50 but all initiation fees and back dues must be paid before the withdrawal card is issued.
Click Here to download a printable withdrawl card request form.
Stop by the office or complete the form and mail it to our office along with your check or money order for the amount due. It is your responsibility to obtain a Withdrawal Card so please take care of it as soon as possible after leaving the company so that you will not be obligated to pay extra dues. Failure to request a Withdrawal Card may cause you to pay back dues.
In accordance with Article XVIII, Section 6 (I) of the IBT Constitution, “it shall be compulsory for any active member on withdrawal to deposit his/her withdrawal card immediately upon return to employment at the craft.”
