We provide a special free benefit to members in good standing who leave Local 655. It’s a withdrawal card entitling you to rejoin Local 655 or any other Local of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union throughout the United States without paying an initiation fee.
If you return to the Retail Industry at a later date, you must deposit this withdrawal card, in person, with the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union under whose jurisdiction you are working within 30 days from the date you resume work at the trade. Failure to turn in your withdrawal card will result in the card becoming void and the full reinstatement fee will have to be paid before you could again be a member of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.
To get a withdrawal card, call (636) 394-6500 or toll free at 1-800-882-6560 and ask for the Membership Department. The withdrawal card will be mailed to your home address currently on file.
