NOTICE TO MEMBERS
Proposed dues increase
Due to a declining membership, (1900 members in 2001 - 1000 members in 2017) it has become financially impossible for this Local to properly represent our members under the current dues structure, therefore, the Executive Board of this Local has recommended the following dues increase.
All career members $2.00 per pay period, which will bring the dues to $32.87 per pay period.
All PSE members $5.62 per pay period in 2018, which will bring the dues to $24.44 per pay period.
$5.62 per pay period in 2019, (one year after initial increase) which will bring dues to $30.06 per pay period.
Currently each member enjoys membership in our Accident Benefit Association at no cost. The Local has absorbed a cost of 75 cents per member per pay period since 1987. This cost will be part of the recommended dues increase.
This dues increase will be read and discussed at the January 21 and February 25, 2018 membership meetings.
After the February 25, 2018 reading a floor vote will be taken to approve or disapprove this increase A simple majority will be needed.
This notice will also be posted to our official Local Website- LONGISLANDAREALOCAL.ORG - and will be sent to all Local associate offices.
