The Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union 52 Constitution and By-Laws Section 14 (c) states that: "No member may be nominated for office unless he is present.

All candidates running for office may select an observer to be present at the time of the election on June 8, 2019. You may also select an observer to be present when the votes are tallied. You must notify the Election Committee of the name of your observer by June 1, 2019. Candidates desiring addresses of membership shall make a request to the Election Committee, who will instruct the secretary to make labels available. Each candidate shall address his/her campaign letters from the roster; seal and stamp the letter at own expense and be escorted to the mail drop box. At no time shall the membership roster be removed from the Local Union Office.

 

Union Meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of each month at 9:00 am.  All members are encouraged to attend.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING UNION DUES AND TRAVEL EXPENSES

While Local 52 encourages you to get the advice of your tax professional, it is our understanding that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in 2017 suspends all miscellaneous itemized deductions that are subject to the 2 percent of adjusted gross income floor. This change affects un-reimbursed employee expenses such as uniforms, union dues and the deduction for business-related meals, entertainment and travel. In other words, union dues and un-reimbursed travel expenses are no longer deductible for the purposes of income tax for tax years beginning after December 31, 2017.  Therefore, you will not receive a 2018 dues statement.
