In compliance with the AFA-CWA Constitution and Bylaws (C&B), monthly dues are set in line with the “CWA Dues Average,” which is the average of the dues paid by all members.
The AFA Board of Directors met in April and agreed that dues would adjust to the current dues average, which is fifty dollars ($50.00) per month. This change will take place for June dues and is in conformity with the “CWA Dues Average” provision in the CWA Merger Agreement located near the end of our C&B.
The International Office has taken steps to contact the Alaska Airlines Payroll Department to inform them of this new amount and to take the necessary steps so that this change will be seamless to you. The correct amount should be deducted without requiring you to take any action.
Note: If you pay annually, be looking for a letter from the International Office informing of the revised amount and payment time line. It should also be noted that the Board voted to eliminate the 10% discount for pre-payment on annual dues for the following fiscal year: June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016.
The dues adjustment will be effective for June paychecks.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Local Executive Council (LEC) president.
