Start of NPF Dues:
The National Police Federation will serve RCMP members, funded by member dues. Members and Reservists can expect the first dues deduction on their January 29 RCMP paycheque. Dues are set at 1.75% of a First-Class Constable salary (pro-rated for those below $86,110). Deductions will be based on 24 deductions per year at $62.79 per pay period.
We wanted to re-share this infographic showing the composition of dues. It’s important to note that many other police association members contribute to legal contingency funds in addition to their dues. NPF has included the legal funds in your dues.
Your dues will fund the services the NPF provides to our members which will include negotiation of pay, resources and other components of a Collective Agreement, member services including legal support for members facing disciplinary processes or use of force complaints and advocacy for our members’ important work across Canada. We’ll provide more information on accessing these important services shortly and will also provide ongoing updates on bargaining.
Confirmation of new NPF Board:
On January 6 the newly elected Board of Directors for the NPF formally assumed their roles at a special general meeting in Ottawa. Your new Board is passionate, engaged, and focused firmly on members’ needs and interests; including your highest priority which is an increase in pay and resources. As you’ve seen in our last update and infographic, we still have a lot of work to do to achieve a new Collective Agreement but we are now formally off and running.
Each Directors’ contact information will be loaded onto the NPF web page shortly and communicated to all members who may have need for assistance.
