  • Honorary/Participating Withdrawal Information
    Updated On: Jan 27, 2021

    If you decide to leave the union, you have three options regarding your membership. You can request an Honorary Withdrawal, a Participating Withdrawal or you can be dropped from membership after six months of non-payment of dues.

    Honorary Withdrawal card

    • No longer pay dues.
    • Cannot attend union meetings and events.
    • You will lose your years of service.
    • If you decide, in the future, to come back to the union, you will not have to pay the initiation fees.
    • You would not have to be approved by the membership to come back into membership; you would pay the $2.00 Death Benefit fee and start paying dues again.

    Participating Withdrawal card

    • You will maintain IBEW membership.
    • No longer a Local 8 member.
    • Cannot attend union meetings and events.
    • You are not entitled to any Local union benefits.
    • You will pay your dues directly to the International Office.
