Not sure what the union does?
Our What We Do page explains what both local chapter 296 (that's us) does and what the NTEU national organization does. Spoiler, it's a lot.
Think it's too expensive?
The Dues Chart shows how much the dues are (based on your salary level). Think how expensive it would be without a union: no pay increases, no transit subsidy, no representation if your supervisor doesn't like you, no family leave, no health insurance, no retirement. (Those are ALL things the union has fought for and won.)
Think it's hard to join?
Okay, well, we are federal employees, so yes, there is a form to fill out. It's sf1187. But it is easy. See our How to Join page.
Did we mention the $100?
That's right, if you sign up during the membership drive, you get $100.
The summer membership drive ends on September 25, 2021
