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.

Current Members:

Payroll deduction of current union dues will continue for this current school year. After that date, all current union members will have to complete a new membership application, including authorizing electronic dues payment, in order to remain an AFT-WV member. 

While electronic dues will not be deducted from your payment method until September 1, 2021, it is imperative we get all members moved to the new system this spring in order to make sure no member has a lapse in coverage after payroll deduction ends. 

 

New Members:

New members may join online now via Edues (use the link below that corresponds to your employment and county) and also will not have dues deducted from your payment method until September 1, 2021.

We appreciate the patience of our members as we navigate this new process. While it may be cumbersome initially, we believe ultimately this change will be a positive thing for our membership, as it puts our union-and no other entity- in control of dues deduction.
