Teamster school bus workers: Remember to find out if your local union requires a withdrawal card if you’re not working over the summer. The withdrawal card is so that you do not pay dues over the break when you are not working. Also, if you go on medical leave, you may need to submit a withdrawal card to your local. Different locals have different policies, so be sure to check!
Do you know your Teamster contract? Are you aware of the rights and protections that are afforded to you through your contract? It’s important to know what is in your contract because it can mean the difference in your job and how you are treated. If you don’t have a copy of your contract, your shop steward or business agent should be able to provide it and answer any questions you may have.
