October 10, 2018 Brian Ginty and the retiree committee held their monthly retiree’s meeting at the Local 88 hall. It is always enjoyable to speak and see the retirees at this meeting. One issue that remains outstanding is the required amount of retirees to sign and return the ” Retired Worker’s Authorization For Check-Off Dues”. I have attached the form for all retirees to sign and return to our Hall at: 364 Victoria Street P.O.

Dues Check off Form (1)
