Part-Time Local Dues Starting October 1

Thank you to our part-time members who attended our first PT-only GMM on September 16th.

Attendees votes in favour of starting the collection of Local Dues from part-time members as of October 1 2020. Local Dues are paid directly to Local 241 in a separate account for part-time member use only. These funds go towards reimbursement of training and union activity expenses for participants and a strike fund.

At the March 2020 GMM, the rate for local dues from part-timers was approved to be 20% of their OPSEU union dues, equal to 0.002% per hour. This will be paid by all part-time employees, including temporary, casual, PNRK, and CSEP.
