How much are dues?
Dues will range from about $12 to $24 per pay period, depending on your pay band. You can use this Excel worksheet to calculate your exact dues amount. Enter your annual salary in the appropriate pay band cell and press the return key to see how much your dues will be each pay period.
At most, it breaks down to about $2.40 per work day – about the cost of a cup of coffee.
Dues fund our chapter’s budget. This budget pays for everything from administrative costs, to social events, to training for your stewards and officers so they can represent you better. Dues also help fund NTEU labor law attorneys and negotiators to fight for stronger contracts, and help if you’re ever treated unfairly or need to file a grievance or other proceeding.
Dues also help pay for legislative coordinators and lobbyists that promote your interests as a federal employee on the Hill. No dues money goes to political campaigns.
How much dues will be, and how they will be spent, are included in the bylaws and disclosed to the members.
