     Starting on June 1, 2017 the Credit Union will be charging the Local $5.00 per member per month for those members who are getting assessments taken out of their Credit Union account to pay the Local, so as of June 1, 2017 the Local will no longer be using this service from the Credit Union. I am sorry for the inconvenience, please call Karen or Jennifer and they will assist you in getting payed up. The Credit Union was getting overwhelmed with the task of doing the assessments for Local 142 and Sheet Metal Local 67 with over 400 members total per month and there is only 3 people on staff over there.
