If you decide you do not want to become a full member, you must be a fee payer, which means your dues are $10 less each semester. You are not entitled, however, to all the benefits listed above that come with full membership. Fee payers benefit from the same contract provisions and collective bargaining rights as full members. A fee payer is known as a fair share payer. A fair share payer has a legitimate business or religious reason for not wanting to join the union. For example, an adjunct who has a full-time management position with a non-Columbia College employer could have a qualifying conflict of interest. Those with work or religious objections must document them (in writing) and make a donation for the amount of our dues to the P-fac scholarship fund at Columbia, or to an approved charity.
