If your CTS paysheet has a deduction for “union dues" then you are a member. You can join our union by signing a card at http://interpretersunited.wfse.org/Docs/dues-card-2013-nov.pdf. There is no initiation fee. Union members pay dues of 1.5% up to a maximum of $76.50 per month. These dues are deducted from your check by CTS and remitted to WFSE/AFSCME Council 28 for Local 1671 Interpreters United.
If you don't work regularly through CTS but want to maintain your membership in Local 1671 current, you can do so by opting to pay flat union dues of $16 per month that will be deducted automatically from your bank or credit union.
To confirm membership in Local 1671, please send an email to local1671[at]gmail.com.
To access the Members Only tab on this website you will need your own username and password which you can request by sending an email to local1671[at]gmail.com.
To confirm that your AFSCME membership card is on its way, please send an email to Irene Smith at WFSE's Organizing Department irenes[at]wfse.org.
While the union is obligated to represent all interpreters working in the bargaining unit, only union dues paying members can participate in the democratic governance of our union, including attending meetings, voting on our union contracts, electing our officers and accessing all sorts of union benefits such as dental discounts, workshops, etc.
