**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.
