Signing the authorization cards!
Dear Research Assistants!
Now that RA Union contract with the Research Foundation has been ratified and you are drawing the benefits from it – I hope you all got your 2% salary increase this fall and a part of your university fees waived and more – it is time to pay the dues (this year the dues are 1.5% of your salary). Every individual RA must authorize the Research Foundation to deduct the dues from their paycheck. And in case you wander if you have to do this then the answer is yes, you are obligated by the National Labor Act to pay union dues.
