How are union dues broken down?

Our Local Union will retain seventy percent (70%) of the collected dues to represent us at all levels with JetBlue. This amount will be used by our Local Union to pay the expenses of administering our Local’s responsibilities, such as legal fees, contract enforcement, arbitration costs, research, office expenses, lost time, etc. The remaining thirty percent (30%) of our dues are remitted to the International Union to support our Local in other matters, such as arbitration training, safety, lobbying to improve workplace conditions, and supporting volunteer organizers in their efforts.
