CAW POLICY LETTER
LETTER NO. 2 October 31, 1986
LETTER NO. 9 SUPERCEDES THIS LETTER NO. 2
Allocation of Dues
To: All Local Unions
This letter refers to Allocation of Dues, of which Thirty-Eight (38%) per cent remains at the Local Union - Article 17, Section 13, Paragraph 6 of the National Constitution.
At the National Executive Board meeting of September 1986, it was agreed that the previous Solidarity Fund would be dispensed with as the Constitution now provides for a One cent (.01) allocation to the Inter-national Affairs Fund by the National Union.
Local Union disbursement of the 38% should be structured as follows:
As of October 1, 1985, in accordance with Article 17, Section 6, local unions shall set aside Ten cents (.10) of every dues dollar into a Political Education Fund; Ten cents (.10) of each dues dollar is to be set aside into the Education Fund; Two cents (.02) of each dues dollar is to be set aside for recreation and leisure time use and One cent (.01) of each dues dollar shall be set aside for the Retired Workers Fund.
I would request therefore that the local unions proceed to set up their funding procedures in accordance with Article 17, Section 6 of the Constitution.
