PSU-AAUP is affiliated with National AAUP (the “501(c)6” organization), the National AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress (the “501(c)5” organization), and AAUP-Oregon.  Our affiliations with National AAUP and AAUP-Oregon are established in the PSU-AAUP Constitution, Article 1 and all members of PSU-AAUP are members of National AAUP and AAUP-Oregon. Since AAUP is an affiliate union of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) as of August 1, 2022, members have access to a variety of AFT individual member benefits. 

Member Dues and representation fees are 1.164% (as of January 1, 2021) of all wages paid monthly; Member Dues and representation fees may increase yearly to cover increases in dues adjustments by our affiliates. Dues are calculated based upon your annual salary and are deducted from each paycheck.

Changes in PSU-AAUP Member Dues are governed by the PSU-AAUP Bylaws Section 7. This section provides that PSU-AAUP dues shall be increased when and if National AAUP, the National AAUP-CBC or any AAUP affiliate increases member dues charged to PSU-AAUP.
