Where do my dues go?

The Union uses the monies paid to fund business operations and activities the Union carries out on behalf of its members; for participating in expert body meetings such as those of the ICSC and training of newly elected staff representatives; to provide legal advice to the Union through our Legal Advisor; to express our views to high-level UN officials and Member States including through social activities, such as an annual joint reception, with all Secretariat Unions for delegates of the 5th Committee, members of the ACABQ and ICSC. Spending, depending on the amount, is voted upon by either the Executive Board or by the Staff Council at its regular weekly meetings. YOU, through your staff representative, get a vote on how your money gets used by the Union. The finances of the Union are audited every two years by an independent auditor.
