TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

Attention: Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business Managers, and Payroll and Personnel Officers

II. CALCULATION METHOD

Union dues and agency fees for all state employee bargaining units represented by CSEA SEIU Local 2001 have been increased 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
1.00% $21.00 $27.50
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 $21.00 dues biweekly.
 
Example 2: State employee earns a base annual salary of $60,000. One percent (1%) of $60,000 is $600 annually. $600 divided by 26 pay periods is $23.08. In this case, the employee would pay $23.08, which is one percent (1%) of their biweekly base earnings. By this methodology, employees would pay one percent (1%) of earnings between $21.00 and $27.50.
 
Example 3: State employee earns a base annual salary of $75,000. One percent (1%) of $75,000 is $750 annually. $750 divided by 26 pay periods is $28.85. In this case, since $28.85 is above the maximum, this employee would pay the maximum $27.50 dues biweekly.
