AAUP Update: AAUP Chapter Membership/Voluntary Collective Bargaining Support Fee

Colleagues:

Later this week, I will be sending out an update with information on the court case, negotiations, voting on a tentative agreement, and more.  Only dues paying members of the Chapter will be able to vote on the tentative agreement, which relates to next year’s raises. 

If you were previously a Department Chair and stepped down, you are not a dues paying member of the Chapter unless you completed and submitted a membership application.  If you did not do so and you would like to become a member of the Chapter, please complete the membership application.

If you were paying the service fee and you are now interested in joining the Chapter so that you can, among other things, vote on Chapter related issues including the upcoming tentative agreement, please complete the membership application.

This next message is for those of you who used to support the Chapter by paying a service fee.  Last summer the Supreme Court ruled that bargaining unit members could not be forced to pay a service fee in lieu of becoming dues paying members of a union.  Therefore, the service fee stopped being deducted from your paycheck last fall. If you were paying the service fee and you would like to continue supporting the Chapter’s efforts to represent you by paying the voluntary collective bargaining support fee, please complete and submit the application.  When you pay the voluntary collective bargaining support fee, your contribution directly supports the Chapter’s efforts and helps cover our legal costs and release ESH for some members of the Executive Committee and the Negotiating Team.

If you are not sure whether you are a dues paying member of the Chapter or if you are currently paying the service fee, please look for information about this on your pay stub.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact any member of our Executive Committee.  The members are listed on the Chapter webpage.

On behalf of the Chapter,

Harry Z.
President-AAUP
