Per Capita Increase
November 1, 2012
Due to the negotiated raise effective 11/17/2012, the Per Capita tax for the IPWU will increase as follows.
Section 1: Dues
A) IPWU per capita tax shall be derived from One Dollar and fifty cents ($1.54) per member, per month. The IPWU per capita tax shall be increased when each negotiated salary increase takes effect by the following formula:
Ten percent (10%) of the dues increase to the locals resulting from a negotiated salary increase (excluding COLA) as published by the APWU.
Accordingly, based on the $.62 dues increase with $.39 going to the locals and $.23 going to the national, the increase to the IPWU Per Capita tax will be 10% of .39 x 26 or $1.01. This number divided by 12 gives a monthly increase of $.08.
The 2013 Per Capita tax will therefore be $1.62 per member per month until the year following another negotiated salary increase.
