What is Fi-core/Beck status?
How do I assert my Fi-core/Beck status rights?
- As a member in good standing, write a letter to the union saying you want to resign from the union in good standing and reapply for Fi-core/Beck status.
- Submit a new membership application. Cross off “Membership” and write in “Fi-core/Beck Status.” The union cannot refuse Fi-core/Beck Status and must give immediate effect to your application. If you belong to more than one Local, you must follow the same procedure with each. Your Local will inform you of your pro-rated Beck status dues.
Important Fi-core/Beck Status details:
Will I be discriminated against if I assert my Fi-core/Beck status rights?
Will I keep the valuable rights accumulated before electing Fi-core/Beck status?
What if I don’t belong to a union?
Access the Beck Status application on the AFM website. The Beck Status application is the same form as for AFM Membership. Cross off the word Membership and write in Beck Status. Sign in all three places. A resignation letter must accompany the application, such as, “I’m resigning in good standing and applying for Beck Status in order to accept both union and non-union work without penalty or repercussion.” One loses voting rights, use of rehearsal space, and AFM directory listing. However, union dues are reduced and new streams of work may increase.
