  • Application for Membership


    There are two things to consider before applying to Local 484:

    1) I.A.T.S.E. 484 is not a hiring hall. You are responsible for finding work yourself.

    2) Once you join the Local, you are a member for life. If you are expelled or take an honorable withdrawal, you will owe back dues to the Local and to the International, should you wish to rejoin. If you are expelled, you will have to pay back dues and fines in their entirety of your absence, a full year of dues in advance, as well as a $50 application fee to rejoin. Members taking an honorable withdrawal are responsible for up to two years of back dues and an administration fee of $25.

    These are not matters to be taken lightly. Be sure you understand the commitment you are making to work professionally in this industry when joining the Local.
