Dues

Here is the dues table for 2020. The structure of the rates, by general job title or description rather than salary range, is the preference of Arkansas Education Association/National Education Association. Local dues are set so the monthly amounts end in _5.00 or _0.00, for simplicity.

OK, Why Join This Union?

Choose your payment method on the dues form: monthly by electronic fund transfer (bank draft) or credit/debit card. We no longer use payroll deductions to protect your privacy. We will not levy back dues from our fall 2019 split with AFSCME. Dues start with AEA’s acceptance of your membership form.

Is there any tax break from union dues? In a word, no. But here that is spelled out from the Turbo Tax gang and the H&R Block crowd.
