Agency Fee Information
Union Agency Fees
California state legislation that became effective January 1, 2000 established "agency shop" at both the California State University and the University of California systems.
The law requires mandatory union "agency fee" paycheck deductions if your position is covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and you are not a registered "dues-paying" member of the union.
The agency fee amount is determined individually by each CSU union, but cannot exceed the union’s regular membership dues.
