Please note that CSEA has added additional steps to their dues/fee table. The maximum annual salary has been changed from $40,000 to $60,000.
The deduction amounts are included in the table above.

Note: The annual salary amounts above exclude additional salary factors.

Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts for part-time, annual salaried employees are calculated based on their part-time percentage.

Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts for employees who receive a raise, increment or longevity pay that is effective after January 1, 2007 will remain at the same amount for calendar year 2007.

The deduction amount for CSEA Hourly employees will continue at 1.3% of earnings as referenced in Payroll Bulletin No. 646 issued June 30, 2006.

Agency Actions

Notify affected employees.

Authorized CSEA Dues and Agency Shop Fee amounts are not adjusted if an employee receives a salary increase.  However, agencies must adjust the Dues or Agency Shop Fee amount when an employee’s percentage of time worked changes (i.e. from part-time to full time or vice versa) or an employee goes on Sick Leave at half pay.  These amounts should be adjusted accordingly when a change in job status results in a salary decrease.
