  • Why Pay Union Dues
    Updated On: Sep 14, 2016

    “Why pay union dues?”
    This is a question often asked by members … former, existing and new alike.  A good way to answer that question is to think of your Union as your Insurance provider, and your dues as the premium.  Like insurance after misfortune, your Union will work to be there for you when you need it. Dues come back to the members in many different ways.
    How much are the dues?
    Union dues are only 2% of base pay. Over-time, differentials, or specialty pay are not included in this calculation.  This means that dues are paid by an equitable percentage system. The maximum any member will pay is $36.00 a pay period.
    This works out to cost you approximately 1 - 1.5 hours of pay every two weeks. 1 hour every two weeks to enjoy the benefits of the union and contribute to our continued growth and strength!
    Are dues tax deductible?
    Yes!
    How will your dues be spent?
    Dues Work for You by covering the costs of:
    • Maintaining Your Contract
    • Legal Counsel
    • Contract Negotiations
    • Member Meetings
    • Publications and Newsletters
    • Grievances and Arbitrations
    • Annual Delegates Conference
    • Salaries of Union director, organizers & office staff
    • Maintenance of Union Offices, utilities, equipment & supplies
    • Legislative Representation

    How often are my dues put to use?

    Every day! District1199NM representatives are active at all time, actively monitoring and actively defending the contract. This ensures that your rights are being protected and we are constantly garnering support for contract negotiations.
     
    What kind of successes the union has had on behalf of workers?
    Every day the union represents workers and defends our union contract.
    We have been successful in ensuring justice in disciplinary actions, mitigating the decisions of management, and fighting for jobs.                      
    Apart from successfully defending workers every day, take a look at your union contract. You will find that your salary and benefits are competitive to others in your industry, and that your dues may come back to you in the form of overtime pay and other apparent benefits won through negotiations.
     
    By paying dues this union belongs to you. The union is only as valuable and useful as the commitment of its membership.
     

    So get to work, pay your dues, and change your workplace from the inside!
