Do I need to do anything to become covered when first hired?
Nurses are advised to call the MRC to ensure coverage at the beginning of employment in an SEIU Healthcare unit.
Do I need to do anything on an ongoing basis to maintain coverage?
Yes there is an annual registration process. In addition, as noted above, good standing must be maintained. You will need to check your email to watch for the renewal period for PLP with SEIU Healthcare.
Am I required to pay minimum dues during leaves to maintain coverage?
Yes, keeping any minimum dues payable current is a condition for good standing.
