Membership Meetings

 
The strength of our union is built on the active participation of members.  Attending monthly Local 563 membership meetings is the best way to make to protect what you have and make sure the benefits of union membership are available to the next generation.  
 
When you attend local meetings, you can find out what the union is doing, have a voice in decision-making, and meet fellow members who may be able to give you useful tips for navigating our industry.  Membership meetings are held as follows: 
 
Metropolitan Area:    1st Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
 
St. Cloud Area:         1st Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
