Note: The annual salary amounts above exclude additional salary factors.

Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts for part-time, annual salaried employees are calculated based on the employee’s part-time percentage.

Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts for employees who receive a raise, increment or longevity pay that is effective after January 1, 2009 will remain at the same amount for calendar year 2009.

The deduction amount for hourly and per diem employees should have Dues deducted at 1.3% of biweekly gross salary, not to exceed $26.58, and exclude Location Pay and Overtime.

 

Agency Actions Notify affected employees.

Authorized CSEA Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts are not adjusted if an employee receives a salary increase.  However, agencies must adjust the Dues or Agency Shop Fee amount when an employee’s percentage of time worked changes (i.e. from part-time to full time or vice versa) or an employee is placed on Sick Leave at half pay.  These amounts should be adjusted accordingly when a change in job status results in a salary decrease.
