    Default Union Dues

    Just wondering what you guys are paying in dues. I pay $31 a check. Was wondering if that was about the norm. Stay safe.

    It's figured on a percentage of the salary for a firefighter, but I can't remember if it's done on midrange or maximum in the overall scale. Oh well, they say the mind is the first thing to go. I pay 38 dollars every 2 weeks.

    $15.00 Every pay period for $390.00 a year.
    A Fire Chief has ONLY 1 JOB and that's to take care of his fireman. EVERYTHING else falls under this.

    Default Union Dues

    We paid 1% of Top Firemans wages. When they received a raise...so did the Union. I think it is still done that way as of today.

    Default Union

    1% of salary goes to the union.

    In Illinois it's the AFFI that fights for our pension benefits so it's well worth it. Every couple of years our union gets us a pension enhancement or at least beats back a challenge to take some away from us.

    Yeah, we do. There's some medical benefits over and above the cities self funded plan and other perks. We think it's worth it.

    We switched to 1% of our base pay about a year and a half ago. We had been paying $10 biweekly. The members refused several increases even though the union was getting behind. This works well because as our pay and inflation go up the unions cut goes up too. It is also nice for our new guys which make way less the first two years. This seems like it will work better in the long run because we won’t have to ask for increases just to stay where we are. It just took us to the brink of bankruptcy to get there! Hopefully in another year or two when we get caught up we can lower this to 0.5%
