We are pleased to announce that the NPF and Treasury Board have entered into an interim agreement on how dues will be deducted and several other items.
As anticipated, dues are set at 1.75% of a First-Class Constable salary (pro-rated for those below $86,110). The NPF has requested January 15, 2020 as the date of the first deduction with no retroactive dues. Initial forecasts of dues deductions were based on 26 pay periods ($57.96 per pay period) but actual deductions will be based on 24 deductions per year ($62.79 per pay period). The percentage of salary and total reductions remain as forecasted, as there will be two pay periods with no deductions. Once the start date is confirmed, the NPF will advise further.
Your dues will fund the services the NPF provides to our members which will include negotiations, research, member services including legal support for members facing disciplinary processes or use of force complaints. We’ll provide more information on accessing these important services shortly but, in the meantime, please reach out if you need us.
