Are Staff Union board members paid extra for this service work out of our dues? Is that why you want us to join and pay?

No we are not paid extra. We only get time-release from the administration to be able to carry out our Union duties: full time for the Leadership and part-time for both Executive Board members and Staff Representatives. Why did we choose to serve in the Union? Because we believe and feel most strongly that everyone who works hard deserves to be treated equally, fairly and be properly paid for their work.
