Membership and Dues

The Faculty Staff Union is funded almost entirely through members' dues. We strongly encourage all faculty and librarians to join the FSU, and almost 90% have (bargaining unit members who do not join the FSU are required to pay the agency service; contact the FSU or see Article 7 of the contract for more details).
