BCARTW Dues Reminder
This is a friendly reminder that your membership dues in the BCARTW for are now due. The BCARTW membership year is from May 1 to April 30. Dues are still only $10.00 per year and you may pay dues for future years (e.g. $20.00 for 2 years). See the ABOUT tab above and select DUES for mailing details.
The BCARTW hopes you will continue to support the society as it continues to address issues and press for change on matters that our members tell us are of major concern to them; issues such as lobbying the TWPP Trustees for increases in our pension benefits and improved medical and dental benefits.
TWU, USW Local 1944 Unit R55, the retiree local in BC, is able to send delegates to TWU conventions where they can debate issues and vote on matters affecting retirees. However, the TWU does not fund the Local in any way. Unit R55 receives all of its funding from the BCARTW. Members such as you make it possible for Unit R55 to continue working for the interests of retirees.
If you currently pay your annual dues by cheque, we encourage you to consider paying your dues through your credit union or the Bank of Montreal. Enclosed is a copy of our dues payment options. For more information, you can visit our webpage at http://www.bcartw.ca/forms/, or call toll-free 1-888-898-5755.
We thank you for your past support, and hope to hear from you soon so we can all work together on the causes that are important to our members.
