In order to receive your new union book, you must make a payment into the new calendar year. For example, if you are currently paid through December 31, 2020, you must pay for at least the month of January 2021 to receive your new union book. If you made a payment and have not received your new union book, please call the Union Hall at (781) 321-6616. Books paid through the new year will be mailed out at the end of March.
No. The only time you can take a leave of absence without paying union dues is if you are deployed with a division of the military. If you are being deployed, please contact the Union Hall so that we may notify the International of your services and take the proper steps to reserve your spot with Local 22.
It is your responsibility to contact the Union Hall at (781) 321-6616 so that your name can be placed on the out of work list. Make sure that you update your telephone number with us so that when work becomes available, you can be reached.
The out of work list is a running list of members that are currently unemployed. As work becomes available, members are put back to work by their rank on the out of work list based on the type of job and capabilities. You can call the office at (781) 321-6616 anytime to see what number you are or to speak with a Business Agent.
There are two ways to find out your number on the out of work list. First, you can call the office at (781) 321-6616 and we’ll be happy to relay that information to you. The second option is to come into the office and check the list posted in our lobby and updated each day.
When applying for a loan, mortgage, etc., or when refinancing, you should list your current employer as the company that you are working for at the time of filling out paperwork and not Laborers’ Local 22.
