MemberLink is Local 49’s brand-new member’s only portal.

This is a completely new system, so you’ll need to create a new account, even if you had a login for the old member portal. Scroll down for step-by-step instructions to create a MemberLink account and pay dues online.

With MemberLink you can:

  • Pay dues online
  • Set up auto pay
  • Register for the out-of-work list
  • Update your contact information
  • Manage dispatch preferences
  • Access members-only information

Create an account

NOTE: You must be a member in good standing or a retiree on the death benefit list to create an account. You must create a new account, even if you had a login for the old member portal.

You will need:

  • Email address.
  • Your name exactly as it appears on your membership card.


  1. Go to
  2. Click or tap “Sign up now.”

  3. Fill in your information. (IMPORTANT: You must type your name exactly as it appears on your union membership card. If you go by “Bob,” but your union card says “Robert,” you must type “Robert.”)

  4. Click or tap “Register.”

  5. Check your email (may take up to five minutes to receive) and click or tap the link to activate your account.

You’re all set! Now you can explore your Local 49 MemberLink account.
