Member Dues

UAW members pay dues in an amount determined by their pay structure and whether they have a legal right to strike, Dues are set by UAW Constitutional Convention delegates.

UAW members who are private or public employees and have a right to strike pay 2.5 hours of straight time pay per month if paid hourly or 1.44 percent of their monthly wages if paid by salary.

UAW members who are public employees and don’t have a legal right to strike, pay 1.9 hours of straight time pay per month if paid hourly or 1.095 percent of their monthly wages if paid by salary.

The UAW Constitution requires two hours of dues to be disbursed to local unions and the International Union; the remaining half-hour of dues is allocated to the UAW Strike and Defense Fund to ensure its growth and strength.

Local unions have constitutional authority to establish dues exceeding the minimum.
