To all those in the URA-AFT bargaining unit:
These reports are being made available to you in compliance with state and federal regulations. The reports summarize income and expenses that were incurred by the URA-AFT between July 1 and June 30 of each fiscal year. You will find that each major income and expense category is broken down into three columns: (1) chargeable to the entire bargaining unit (2) chargeable to members only and (3) the balance of non-chargeable items.
Expenses that can be charged to the entire bargaining unit are those that are germane to collective bargaining, contract administration and grievance adjustment. “Non-chargeable” expenses are those that do not benefit everyone in the bargaining unit and may be of an ideological or political nature. Two examples are special membership events and charitable donations.
Currently, URA-AFT charges an agency fee to non-members of the URA-AFT for costs associated with collective bargaining and administering the collective agreement. The agency fee is set at a rate of 85% of the full dues, which are 1.20% of an employee’s annual base salary. Agency fees are deducted from employees’ paychecks and transferred to the URA-AFT by Rutgers University.
URA-AFT’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. AFT, the parent organization to which we pay per capita dues, undergoes an independent audit every fiscal year.
