At the AAUP-UC membership meeting on Thursday, February 8, 2018, the Executive Council proposed a 0.25% dues increase in the event that the US Supreme Court rules that public sector unions are prohibited from collecting fair share fees from non-members (Janus vs. AFSCME). The increase would not go into effect unless there is an adverse ruling from the Supreme Court. The increase would not be implemented until September 1st, 2018.
The Executive Council will host a series of Q and A sessions to present information and gather feedback on the resolution. Following are the dates, locations, and times for the Q and A session:
February 28 10 a.m.-11 a.m. 400C TUC (west campus)
