      Starting July 5, 2021, online dues payments will be processed through UNIONLY rather than PayPal.  Unionly is a Seattle-based Union friendly platform already used by several IATSE Locals. We are happy to join with Unionly in providing support and services to members of Local 887.  As with PayPal, all processing fees have been suspended through the end of 2021.  The link for dues payment through Unionly is located on the "Paying Membership Dues" tab under MEMBER RESOURCES.  Or, use this direct link:  www.unionly.io/o/iatse887.
