Information on Signing Up as a Member/Issues logging in

We have recently made some changes to the website per the membership’s wishes. This includes an active forum as well as better security and privacy for members. As such you will now need a membership login to access “members only” parts of our site. This includes but is in no way limited to: Events, Meeting Calendar, Bulletins going forward, Retirements, Photos, etc.

In order to sign up for our website you will need to be a member in good standing with ATU Local 583. You may sign up at where you will fill out your information for approval by our Admin. Your account will be verified by your full name and employee number so please be sure this information is correct as any discrepancies may slow down/nullify your account being approved. We will do our best to get in contact with people we think have made an error. Non-members or members not in good standing will likely not be accepted.

The Administrator of this website will endeavor to approve accounts within ten business days. However, often that time will be significantly shorter. If your account has not been approved and it has been longer than ten business days please get in contact with our office either by phone or via the contact form.

PLEASE NOTE: Once you have signed up your account awaits verification and approval. This means if you have NOT received an approval email prompting you to create a password, you have not yet been approved and the timelines above apply. If you try and sign in or access your account before approval you will not be able to do so. Once your account is approved if you have an issue accessing it your next step is to try a password reset. After that please contact us for further help via one of the above methods.
Please provide your full name, email address you signed up with and employee number to obtain a temporary password. Passwords will only be sent to the email used to sign up the account.
