York mistakenly applies levy to new members

Some members may have noticed that on their September 25th paycheque they were charged a special levy in addition to regular union dues. It appears the levy was applied to mainly new bargaining unit members. The levy was not requested by CUPE 3903.

When the union received the dues list and noticed the special levy had been charged we immediately reached out to Faculty Relations to resolve the issue. Payroll had already caught the error, but not until after paycheques went out. The payroll manager has confirmed that refunds have been requested, and should be “issued no later than the October 25th pay date.”
