Accident Donation Benefit

Any beneficial member of this Local Union who has lost wages, except members paying retired dues, who has been in good standing for twelve (12) consecutive months, in this Local Union immediately prior to being visited by illness or meeting with an accident not caused by intoxication or misconduct, after one (1) week shall be entitled to sick benefits which shall be $125.00 per week for eight (8) weeks not to exceed one (1) full benefit per (12) consecutive months. A doctor’s statement shall be required as to the dates of disability. This is for one event only; a member cannot ask for benefits each year for the same injury/illness. If for any reason the office staff feels that there are any inconsistencies of the members request, they may forward it to Executive Committee for review
