There is a one-time initiation fee that is charged when you first join the Guild. The fee is two weeks’ scale wage in the job category in which you’re first hired (that is, not your actual rate of pay, which might be higher). This fee is included in your balance when you are set up as a new member. To estimate your initiation fee, check out the scale wage of your job category, or contact the Guild office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our parent union, the IATSE, charges a one-time processing fee of $100. This fee is included in your balance when you are set up as a new member, so please don’t send it separately! We will pay the registration fee from your initiation fee. Lastly, all Active members will be charged quarterly dues (every three months), which are due on or before January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1.
