TAUP will be holding workshops to offer information about applying for Unemployment Compensation starting on Thursday of this week.
Whether you have questions about eligibility, how to properly fill out forms, if you want to know what to do if you are still working part time, or anything else, we can help you.
Workshops are one hour long and by appointment only. Anyone in the TAUP collective bargaining unit is welcome to attend.
We have tried to offer as many dates and times as possible. Please see the schedule below and email TAUPUCworkshops@gmail.com to make an appointment
For Adjuncts: Here’s How You Can Pay Your Dues
As mentioned in our last eBulletin, Temple has a period of time during which they will be configuring their systems to collect union dues from adjuncts. But that’s over a semester away. Because of this, we are working with a company that collects dues for other unions across the country. We aim to have it up and running before December paychecks are out. In the meantime, we are asking members to pay dues this month by check. Your dues are 0.55% of your pay (which goes to TAUP) plus $9.48 (which goes to our affiliates, the AFT, AFTPA and AFLCIO). For most adjuncts, this will be between $15-16 per course, per pay period.
We do need the support of our members to do the work that allows us to continue to build our strength and helps us in enforcing the contract, providing services for members, and bargaining for more gains in the future. We look to you to pay your share.
When our system for automatic dues deduction is launched, we will be in touch with you. Meanwhile, please take a moment to send a check to TAUP and bring it to our office at 721 Ritter Annex or mail it to:
