||Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business
Payroll and Personnel Officers
|Subject:||Increase in Dues/Fees, CSEA Bargaining Units|
In accordance with the request of the Connecticut State Employees Association, SEIU Local 2001, the following dues/fees increase was implemented effective with the pay period February 27, 2009 through March 12, 2009 (check date March 27, 2009).

II. CALCULATION METHOD
Union dues and agency fees for all state employee bargaining units represented by CSEA SEIU Local 2001 have been increased from a flat $20 biweekly amount to a percentage of base pay (overtime excluded and premium pay excluded) with a biweekly minimum and biweekly maximum as follows:
|% of base pay as dues||minimum biweekly dues/fees||maximum biweekly dues/fees|
Example 1: State employee earns a base annual salary of $45,000. One percent (1%) of $45,000 is $450 annually. $450 divided by 26 pay periods is $17.31. In this case, since $17.31 biweekly is below the minimum, this employee would pay the minimum $20 dues biweekly.
Example 2: State employee earns a base annual salary of $55,000. One percent (1%) of $55,000 is $550 annually. $550 divided by 26 pay periods is $21.15. In this case, the employee would pay $21.15 which is one percent (1%) of their biweekly base earnings. By this methodology, any employee one percent (1%) that are between $20 and $25 pay that amount.
Example 3: State employee earns a base annual salary of $70,000. One percent (1%) of $70,000 is $700 annually. $700 divided by 26 pay periods is $26.92. In this case, since $26.92 is above the maximum, this employee would pay the maximum $25 dues biweekly.
