Subject: Increase in Dues/Fees, CSEA Bargaining Units

I. AUTHORITY

In accordance with the request of the Connecticut State Employees Association, SEIU Local 2001, the following dues/fees increase will be implemented effective with the pay period June 4, 2010 through June 17, 2010 (check date July 2, 2010).

II. CALCULATION METHOD

Union dues and agency fees for all state employee bargaining units represented by CSEA SEIU Local 2001 are 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%    $23.00    $32.00

Example 1: 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, since $21.15 biweekly is below the minimum, this employee would pay the minimum $23.00 dues biweekly.

Example 2: 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, the employee would pay $26.92, which is one percent (1%) of their biweekly base earnings. By this methodology, employees would pay one percent (1%) of earnings between $23.00 and $32.00.

Example 3: State employee earns a base annual salary of $85,000. One percent (1%) of $85,000 is $850 annually. $850 divided by 26 pay periods is $32.69. In this case, since $32.69 is above the maximum, this employee would pay the maximum $32.00 dues biweekly.
