  • Why Pay Union Dues
    Updated On: Jul 13, 2021
    Union Dues
    How much are the dues?
    Union dues are set by our national union and are based on your base pay and the number of hours you work. Over-time, differentials, or specialty pay are not included in this calculation. The formula is 2% (of base pay) X hours per pay period. Dues are paid by an equitable percentage system. The maximum any member pays is $37.50 per pay period. it works out to approximately 1 - 1.5 hours of your hourly pay every two weeks. Your dues ensure your Unions' strength!
    How are dues spent?
    Dues help cover the costs of:
    • Maintaining Your Contract
    • Contract Negotiations
    • Publications and Newsletters
    • Grievances and Arbitrations
    • Legal Counsel
    • Annual Delegate Conferences
    • Education and training
    • Salaries of Union director, organizers, & office staff
    • Maintenance of Union offices, phones, utilities, equipment, & supplies
    What kind of successes the union has had on behalf of workers?
    Every day union activists and staff work to defend the provisions of the union contract ensuring justice in disciplinary actions, mitigating management decisions, representing employees who are suffering discrimination or bullying, fighting for jobs, and improving working conditions of all employees. Take a look at your union contract and you will find that your salary and benefits are competitive to others in your industry. When workers have issues to deal with they can seek the assistance of a delegate or officer at their workplace or contact the union office for guidance and representation.
