Its a Win! ASU now has Maintenance of Membership

Over 1/3 of the Administrative Support employees cast their ballot during the Maintenace of Membership vote with an overwhelming 87% of the votes in favor of Maintenance of Membership.

This is the last group of all of the State employees (over 26,000) employees to become either fair share or Maintenance of Membership. To those employees already hired at UW Hospital, this means no change to them. If you are already a member of the Local, you will stay a member. If you are not a member, nothing will change for you unless you chose to join the union. New employees hired will have the option of joining the union or not, but will be paying Maintenance of Membership dues (same cost as union dues).
