Union dues are set at 1.35% of your gross monthly income, whether you work part-time or full-time. Bonuses, shift premiums and overtime are not included in this calculation and you do not pay dues when you are off on WSIB, leave of absence, maternity or parental leave, or sick leave.
Unionized workers make on average $5.17 more per hour than non-union workers. Women union members will make on average $6.89 more and young members (15-24) make on average $3.16 more
Union dues are tax deductible.
