UPTE dues rate for administrative professional staff
As you may know, administrative professional employees are organizing with UPTE for a union contract and people want to know how much dues will be.

When will we start to pay dues and how much will dues cost?

  • Dues will begin only after we approve our first contract
  • Dues for administrative professionals will be $20 per month
  • Each year that we negotiate at least a 2% pay increase, maximum dues will rise by $5.

Money is tight these days, but we all understand the importance of investing in our future. UC employees already covered by UPTE contracts recognize the good value they’re getting for their dues.

What would UPTE dues mean for my paycheck?
Following are some examples, providing that:

  • Administrative professional employees approve a contract in 2013
  • The contract includes minimum annual 2% pay increases for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Annual salary Monthly salary Monthly dues 2013 Monthly dues 2014 Monthly dues 2015
$50,000 $4,167 $20 $25 $30
$60,000 $5,000 $20 $25 $30
$70,000 $5,833 $20 $25 $30
