  • Per Capita Increase

    We have two types of dues increases coming up in December. One is tied to the 2% Hawaiian Telcom general wage increase which takes effect December 25, 2016, and therefore affects HT employees only. The other is the result of several amendments to Article IX of the IBEW Constitution, approved by the delegates of the 39th IBEW International Convention. Effective January 1, 2017, there will be an increase of two dollars ($2.00) for "A" member contributions to the IBEW Pension Benefit Fund (PBF). There will be no change in the per capita that is paid to the General Fund, and therefore, the rate for all "BA" members shall remain the same. The following rates apply to the international office portion of all monthly dues payments for January 2017 and thereafter:


    "A" Member "BA" Member "FP" Fee Payer
    PER CAPITA: $18.00 $18.00 $18.00
    PENSION FUND: $18.00 Not Applicable Not Applicable
    TOTALS: $36.00 $18.00 $18.00

    For your reference and information, all of the rate changes that were approved at the 39th International Convention are summarized below:

    EFFECTIVE DATE: 1/1/2017 1/1/2018 1/1/2019 1/1/2020
    PER CAPITA: $18.00 $19.00 $19.00 $20.00
    PENSION FUND: $18.00 $18.00 $19.00 $19.00
    TOTALS: $36.00 $37.00 $38.00 $39.00

    Dues tied to 2% HT general wage increase:
    Union dues are based on members' straight-time hourly rate of pay (Article IX of Local Union 1357 Bylaws). Whenever a member's hourly rate of pay increases, his/her dues assessment increases accordingly. The 2% HT general wage increase takes effect December 26, 2016. Dues adjustments become effective on the first pay period following the adjustment.
