RE: Upcoming Union Dues Survey 

April 23, 2021

Dear Members, 

We are conducting a survey and informing members about the Local structure and costs with relation to Union Dues.

Did you know that your Union Dues are a tax deduction? On the average income, without any extra contributions or deductions, it can be the difference from paying taxes or getting a refund.

Example: Member with no extra deductions, a basic T4 with 1.75% dues rate. 

Total Wages: $ 58,294 $ 58,294

Union Dues: $ 1,015 $ 0

Balance due/(refund): ($154) $ 132

Our next General Meeting is scheduled for May 12th, 2021 at 7:00pm. 

Register in advance for this meeting: visit www.cupe374.ca.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

If it is determined to process a vote for a Union Dues increase, the special meeting will be announced at the General Meeting with a minimum of 7 days notice as per the Bylaws. You will need to attend the Special Meeting to be able to vote.

RE: Upcoming Union Dues Survey

Dear Members, 

We will be conducting a survey via Survey Monkey regarding Union Dues. Last year before the pandemic, a dues increase was on the General Meeting Agenda. This discussion now needs to be addressed. A survey with options will be sent out for membership input before any vote is scheduled.

Only members that have subscribed to receive union updates and bulletins will receive the survey link. If you have not already subscribed, please do so now subscribe here. If you have any questions, please address them to your unit VP.

Thank you.

In Solidarity,

Shireen Clark

President, CUPE Local 374
