Lets talk about your Union Dues. In accordance with the Constitution of the IBEW and the Bylaws of Local Union 10 IBEW, "Dues will increase by the same percentage as the negotiated wage increase under the New York State Electric and Gas Labor Agreement."
However, this year, due to the frugal managing of funds here at Local 10 the increase will only be 1%. I am very happy to be able to announce this 1% increase of dues for 2017 to our members. I believe, as did the Executive Board, that the Locals funds are such that the local can bear the modest increase.
Thank you to all who have worked so hard to make this possible.
