Paying membership dues

While the majority of members will have their union dues automatically deducted, some members – when on parental leave, long-term disability or other circumstances – find that their dues deductions stop.

To keep your membership current, you can pay your dues either through a credit union, by e-transfer, or through our PayPal account.

Method 1: Paying through a credit union

If you credit union is set up to pay us directly via online banking, you can make your payment directly through your credit union. We are set up as a payee under the name “COPE Local 378.”

Method 2: As an e-transfer

You can pay us directly through Interac e-transfer by sending your payment to

In the memo field, please make sure to include your name (even if you are paying for yourself) as well as your MoveUP member ID number. If you do not know your MoveUP member number, you can fill out an online form to request it.

Alternatively, you can put your name, your employer, and your employee number (e.g. John Doe, ICBC, 123456).

Method 3: Through a debit or credit card via PayPal

When you click on the link below, you will be taken to a page that asks you to enter a ‘donation’ amount. Enter the amount as directed by a letter or phone call from the union office.

Although the PayPal page says “donation” please be assured that you are paying your membership dues, which are tax deductible.

Who should make dues payment through these methods?

You should only use this form only if you need to pay your dues directly to our union. In general, if your employer is already remitting your dues to MoveUP on your behalf, you DO NOT need to use this form unless your dues fall behind the monthly minimum and you need to make up the difference.

If you have any questions about your dues status, please email

Associate Members can also pay using the methods listed on this page.

How much should I be paying?

If you need to use one of these methods to pay your dues, you will be informed by the amount you are required to pay either by letter or through a phone call with our union office.

If you are unsure of how much you need to pay, please contact our Membership Department at

Associate Members pay the minimum dues of $20 per month.
