A message from Local 243 President Mario Dusio:

Dear Madison College Staff and Full-time Faculty,

Full-time faculty may notice on their April 15, 2014 pay advice that the College has deducted union dues.

Local 243 has requested the College refund those deductions to all employees. In addition, AFT has been able to ‘place a hold’ on the automatic deduction of Local 243 dues for those of you who have reMembered. We have taken these actions to assure that dues are only collected from recommitted Local 243 members and that those members do not experience duplicate dues deductions.

The College informed me they were “able to update the PeopleSoft HR/Payroll system to stop the union deductions for the PSRP pay checks being issued on April 18.” This means that PSRP will NOT have union dues deducted by the college from the paychecks they will receive this Friday.

We anticipate this will be corrected quickly and are committed to doing what we can to assist the College in achieving a fast and easy resolution. Updates will be provided as they become available.
