MUP Related FAQs:
Each member will be assessed up to two days per calendar year.
Assigning dates to all members helps to ensure a strong showing of members at each activity.
The members are chosen randomly for set dates by a computer program.
The time depends on the location and purpose of the activity. It typically will be two (2) hours.
You will call the designated hotline number - which is located on your letter - the night before your scheduled activity.
Because activities usually are only two (2) hours long, you must give yourself ample time to arrive before the activity starts; otherwise, you will have to reschedule your participation date.
Absolutely. Please call the hotline for the next available location and be sure to sign in and get a receipt at the line.
Weather will be taken into consideration and we will do our best to reschedule or cancel the night before; otherwise, show up at the location to get credit for the day.
You can ask another member of the council to substitute for you. However, if that person fails to participate, the originally assigned member shall be subject to an assessment if the date is not made up.
Retirees and contractors are excused from participation.
Council members can participate in any action throughout the council, not just in their home local's jurisdiction, and get credit for the day.
Yes, upon approval of the Council/Local, you may get credit for your participation for volunteering in local community activities.
Any member who fails to participate is subject to a dues assessment per offense and possible suspension from membership as per the Council By-Laws.
As a member, you have certain obligations to your union and we need the cooperation of all members to show our unity, build our market share, and strengthen the union.
