Dear Brothers and Sisters:

The Executive board has enacted the following two changes with respect to dues:

  1. Apprentice Dues: Given the pandemic’s particularly hard impact upon the number of apprentices and the desire to increase apprenticeship membership, the monthly dues for all apprentice members is reduced to $20 per month. This reduction is effective January 1, 2021. (Monthly dues for regular journeyman and pensioners remain the same.)
  2. Extension of January 1 Deadline: Given the December holidays, the January 1, 2021 deadline to pay November 2020 dues to avoid suspension has been extended to January 6, 2021.

On behalf of the entire Local 78 Executive Board and staff, Supervisor and Eastern Regional Manager Raymond M. Pocino and Mason Tenders District Council staff, we would like to thank you all for your dedication, perseverance, and bravery during these trying times that we live in. We would also like to wish you Happy Holidays! May you and your family enjoy all the warmth this season has to offer. Have wonderful Holidays and a New Year filled with love, peace, and health. Stay safe Brothers and Sisters.


Fabian Derewiecki
Deputy Supervisor
