Union members voted to support the recommendation of the Local 1189 Executive Board on October 17, 2018 when they overwhelmingly voted to defer the dues increase which would have otherwise been mandated to take place July 1 of this year and would require an increase of .46/week for all members.  The vote authorized the local to defer the increase until June 2019 and to amend the amount of the increase to be .45 per week for Full-time and .30 per week for Part-time.
