Bylaw to raise dues comes up for second vote, Update
Updated On: Mar 09, 2023
Update: Members of Local 406 approved a dues increase during the general meetings on Feb. 22, 2023. The vote was the second on a bylaw asking members to pay in dues the equivalent of 1.5 hours pay.
Local 406 members will vote for a second time on a bylaw change to raise dues during the general meetings on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Under the Local’s constitution, bylaw changes can only be made with winning votes at two successive meetings.
This bylaw change was approved by vote at the Jan. 18 meetings. Here is the proposed language:
Article Vll, Section 1.
“All members shall pay to the Secretary Treasurer monthly an amount equal to one and one half (1.5) hours pay at days rate, not to exceed top minimum scale for their job classifications; plus the amount of current International Per Capita Tax per month. All dues structure shall be adjusted annually.”
The result will be to raise dues by half an hour monthly. Dues are listed on paychecks. For a rough calculation, multiply the figure by 1.5.
