As some members have already seen, the biweekly dues have gone up from $17.00 to $21.00 bi-weekly. This increase was proposed months ago at a monthly meeting and was passed by the membership. The dues increase was due to the rising costs of services and to continue to provide quality services to our members. We are still at a competitive price with other unions in the area, as our executive board still continues not to be paid for any services. Most, if not all unions in the area, have employees on payroll, but we continue to run our organization with volunteers only. Also as a reminder, this is the first time we have ever had to raise our dues, and secondly we only deduct twice a month, even though members are paid three times a month, twice a year. Please contact any board member if you have further questions. Thank you and continue to watch your six!
