How is the amount of union dues established?

The Staff Council determines the amount of dues. Recently, the Staff Council adopted a resolution setting a minimum of $5.00 as the monthly contribution, which roughly represents 1/400th of a GS- 4 salary and currently topping out at $20.00 for a D-2 staff. There is a table with recommended contribution amounts for each category and level on the back of the membership form for ease of reference; you can also contact your staff rep for more information. Once you sign the form dues are automatically deducted every pay period by UN Payroll.
