All CUASA employees pay dues to the Union. Dues are deducted from members’ pay cheques by the University and are remitted to CUASA.
We then uses these dues to conduct the business of the Association, including grievance representation and defence, collective bargaining, member events, renting office space, and employing staff to support CUASA. A portion of dues is also set aside for a strike and lockout defence fund.
The amount of dues members pay is based off an approved calculation. Under Article X of the CUASA Constitution, any changes to this rate shall be proposed by CUASA Council and ratified by members at a General Meeting of the Association.
