At HEU’s 2022 Biennial Convention, delegates adopted a resolution establishing a Small and Mid-sized Local Supplement (SMLS) which provides additional budgetary support to smaller locals over and above the monthly dues rebate.
The $1,500 supplement is available to qualified locals on an annual basis starting in 2023.
The criteria are as follows:
- 500 or fewer members (as calculated by Provincial Office based on payroll records)
- Submitted their first quarterly report for the year
- Confirm that they require the additional support
- Provide a copy of their most current bank statement
Qualified locals must apply annually for the SMLS by June 30. For example, applications for the 2023 supplement must be submitted by June 30, 2023.
Please note that locals will not be able to claim the SMLS for previous years. For example, in 2024, a local will not be able to apply for a 2023 supplement.
We hope that the SMLS will help support activities that engage members in your local.
