Over 90% of dues and fees leave campus

Less than 10% of dues and representation fees remain on campus to fund union activities. Union dues and representation fees directly profit the state union (MEA-MFT) and national union (NEA and AFT) organizations that do not share the interests of MSU. Annual union dues are $631 for most members, and representation fees total $417 for most non-members. If we decertify AFMSU, faculty will each receive effective raises of about 1% for the remainder of their careers, about $20K in total for many faculty members.
