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.
