Work dues are paid by members for each job performed under a union contract. These funds stay with Local 1000. These are the Local’s primary source of income. The more Local 1000 members file contracts and pay work dues, the better we are able to serve our members and grow.
Work dues are 2.5% of scale wages on every job for which you file a contract, for engagements performed on or after March 1, 2013. Engagements performed prior to March 1, 2013 are billed at the previous rate of 2%.
For example, if you perform a small concert for which the scale is $110, your work dues for this gig would be 2.5% of $110, or $2.75.
Once you begin filing contracts we will invoice you for work dues on a regular basis.
