We ask all members to remain vigilant to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Here are some tips to keep yourself and others safe.

We encourage all of our members to download the KMR Union Dues App today, available for iOS and Android. A User ID & temporary password allowing access to your account were sent by email and sent to your home address in a follow-up mailing. If you do not have this information, call the Union Office, and we will be glad to assist you.

We have reopened the Building with new safety protocols. Any member or visitor will need to make an appointment before entering the building.

Please note: We will not be accepting ANY WALK-INS. Members must make an APPOINTMENT prior to visiting the Local 1 Building. Appointments will be limited to 15 minutes for dues payments and 30 minutes to meet with an officer. Any person entering the Building will have their temperature scanned upon arrival. Hand sanitizer stations have been set up throughout the building. We encourage our members opt to pay Union Dues over the phone or through the KMR App rather than in person.

TO FURTHER ASSIST YOU, WE NOW HAVE A COVID-19 page set up on the website provide you with additional resources and information from both the Trust Funds and Educational Fund Offices.  CLICK HERE to visit the COVID-19 Resources page.
