Our initiation fee and dues are set by Article 16 of the UAW International Constitution. New members pay a one-time initiation fee of $10. Every member contributes a fixed amount of dues every month, pre-tax out of their paycheck. Monthly dues are $8.55 for ISAs, $14.77 for GAs, and $17.30 for TAs. If you hold multiple positions, you only pay dues for the highest position. Members pay dues only during the time that they are employed as an academic student worker.
