Notice: BE SURE TO GET A WITHDRAWAL CARD
It is important to get a withdrawal card from the Local Union if you do not work and are not being paid by your Employer. This applies if you terminate your employment, go on unpaid sick leave, workers compensation, a leave of absence, are laid off, or for any reason you do not work and are not being paid by your Employer. Members must request a withdrawal card. Failure to request a withdrawal card will make you responsible for all back dues and possibly a re-initiation fee. Your request should be submitted before the end of the month in which you last worked. A withdrawal card allows a member to maintain his or her membership on an inactive basis. In other words, you will not owe union dues for any months you did not work after you obtain the withdrawal card. Additionally, this allows you to avoid paying a re-initiation fee when you return to employment.
You can request a withdrawal card by mail or by clicking on and printing the withdrawal form. Along with your request, please include fifty cents to cover the cost of the withdrawal card. Mail requests to:
Teamsters Local Union No. 429

You may also apply for a withdrawal card in person at the above address. The business hours are:
