Agency Fee Member Notification Letter

Fair Share/Agency Fee
Beginning in Fall 2010 the SOCCCD Faculty Association has changed to Fair Share membership.
 
What is Fair Share/Agency Fee?
Faire Share is when employees are required to either join a union or pay the organization a fee as a condition of employment.  Employees affected include all faculty in the collective bargaining unit.  Since the union must represent every employee within the bargaining unit, whether or not the employee is a member of the union the agency fees are intended to compensate for this representation.
