TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

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 December 16, 2011 through December 29, 2011 (check date January 13, 2012).

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% $24.00 $34.00
Example 1: 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, since $23.08 biweekly is below the minimum, this employee would pay the minimum $24.00 dues biweekly.
 
Example 2: 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, the employee would pay $28.85, which is one percent (1%) of their biweekly base earnings. By this methodology, employees would pay one percent (1%) of earnings between $24.00 and $34.00.
 
Example 3: State employee earns a base annual salary of $95,000. One percent (1%) of $95,000 is $950 annually. $950 divided by 26 pay periods is $36.54. In this case, since $36.54 is above the maximum, this employee would pay the maximum $34.00 dues biweekly.
