HB 2009 passes; Payroll deduction of union dues prohibited 

The West Virginia Legislature passed a bill on March 19th to prohibit public employees from having their union dues automatically deducted from their paychecks, a practice that has been the norm for decades.  

In order to continue coverage and benefits for our members, such as liability insurance, grievance representation, life insurance, member benefits, and professional representation, AFT-WV is switching to a new Edues platform for electronic union dues payments.
