The Local was recently informed by CUPE National that because we were collecting dues in a flat rate manner, we weren’t collecting or remitting the appropriate amounts to them. In order to rectify this, we have updated our bylaws (specifically Section 11 – Fees, Dues and Assessments) and have implemented a percentage rate of 1.4%. The Bylaw change was approved by the membership in May 2015 and CUPE National in June 2015. Beginning with the first pay in September 2015, each of your pay cheques will have dues deducted from it.
If you require any further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to a general membership meeting which takes place on the first Wednesday of each month at 19 John St.
