A dues increase of .80 per month (.40 cents per paycheck), mandated by our International Union AFSCME, will go into effect on January 1, 2016. This increase is mandated by Article IX, Section 6 of the AFSCME Constitution, and was not initiated by Local 1549.
The written notice from AFSCME Secretary-Treasurer Laura Reyes, which provides the calculation for the increase, is available by clicking the link below. Local 1549's share of the increase is .10 cents per month.
This dues increase applies to AFSCME members across the country.
