How much do I pay for Union and Local dues?
Union dues for all members
The OPSEU-SEFPO union due is 1.375% of your gross pay (before deductions). Example: If your gross pay (before deductions) for a single pay period is $1000, you pay $13.75 to OPSEU.
Local due for full-time members
Full-time members pay $4.50 local due per paycheque.
Local due for part-time members
The local due for part-time members is calculated at 0.2% based on your hourly rate and the number of hours you worked in that pay period.
Example: If your hourly rate is $20.00 and you worked 36 hours for that pay period, you pay
($20.00 x 36) x 0.002 = $1.44
