As per the International Constitution, dues per-capita tax increases are based on a percentage increase of the CPI, at the beginning of each year. The District increases are based on a percentage of the GL rates.
The dues increases are set by the individual Locals. Each Local takes the PCT set by the GL & DL and then the amount needed to operate the Local. This year the total dues increase from the GL & DL is set at $0.57.
As discussed during the Monthly Meetings, Local 1726 is going to absorb the dues increase for 2014, and not pass the increase to the membership.
This is possible because the support the Officers received from the members of this Local. We we able to take many cost-saving measures throughout the year, and put the Local on the right track.
We appreciate the members support throughout the year and look forward to a positive 2014.
