    Question IAFF Union Dues

    I'd like to compare what other IAFF Local pay in union dues per month. We are discussing raising them..Ours are approx.$40 per month...which is comparable to 2 of 3 neighboring Locals.


    thanx

    Cool

    Scott we pay $31.00 a month right now, our dues are based on 1% of a class three firefighter pay. As we get pay raises our dues go up. I think the International would like everyone to pay 1% of their base pay. Hope this helps you some!

    We pay $24/month. It's based more on our costs (dues to IAFF, AFL-CIO, Prof FF of NH) than a percentage of income.

    Cool

    When we started your union our dues where $20.00 a month. Last year the members voted to lower them to $15.00. With the IAFF raising the dues again we may have to raise ours back up.

    In watertown we pay 2% of monthly pay so most guys pay over $60 a month so don't feel bad.

    Cool

    Our IAFF dues are 1% of firefighter's pay, maximum in grade. The dues are $7.97 per week for all members covered in our collective bargaining agreement (this includes Lieutenants, Captains and the Deputy Chiefs).

    We pay one hours pay (base ff's) every pay (26 pays a year). This way every time we get a raise our union dues go up.
    We used to adjust our dues about every two years.

    We are a fairly new local and we started are dues at $20.00 a month to take care of Iaff dues, PPFFA dues and savings. We only have four in our local and this gives us some spending money if needed.

    Cool

    Our Local is comprised of just over 1000 members. We have have 2 full time and 22 part-time employees to service our membership and provide Public Relations to the community. The employees make between 11k and 25k annually. We pay 1.25% of our gross annual salary. The more you have to loose the more you have to pay. This works well because as we get raises so does our union. This has keep our local(2928) financially sound through many long battles. As a member of the IAFF your local may request information on dues from other locals your size from the International Association of Firefighters research dept. They are very helpfull with these types of issuses.

    Question?

    For all these various dues and fees, does the union provide any of the following:

    - A Union pension,
    - An affordable Group Medical, Dental,
    and/or Vision Plan,
    - A Legal Services Plan,
    - 401K Program,
    - Burial Expenses

    Just curious about this. Thanks for the help.
