How would my local change from flat dues to percentage dues?

For your local to change from members paying a flat dues based model to one where each member pays the equivalent of 1% of their salary, the local must:

  1. Request Executive Board’s approval to hold a referendum under Article 21.2; and
  2. The members of your local must vote in favour of this change in a referendum

A referendum under Article 21.2 would be held in accordance with Society and Local constitution, by-laws, policies and procedures.

Assuming the proposed amendment is adopted by members at the close of voting at 1:00pm on April 15, 2019, a local could request approval to hold a referendum under Article 21.2 as soon as the results of the constitutional referendum are announced.
