UFCW 5 has implemented a program that is designed to help new members reduce their initiation fee by one-third (1/3). A new member will be eligible for this reduction in their initiation fees by getting involved with our Union. In order to qualify, the new member must do the following:

1. Attend the new member orientation meeting.

2. Participate in three (3) additional Local 5 actions; such as membership meetings, attend an office hosted virtual town hall meeting, rallies and other Union sponsored event.

If a new member participates in the three (3) events over the course of an eighteen (18) month period following the new member orientation meeting, they will be given a credit of one-third (1/3) of the initiation fees.

You should always check our website for upcoming meetings and events. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact your Union Representative.

Thank you,

John Nunes, President
