Huh? This is some of the worst math I've ever seen! With bad facts too.200k with a 5% raise is 10k 210k
1.6 percent of that 3360
-your proportional union dues (1.5%) 3150
Net raise of 110 dollars/26 paychecks
4.23 a paycheck
First off, NATCA dues are 1.4%
$200k means you're paying $2800 per year in Union dues, or $107.69 per paycheck.
You get a 5% raise (your suggestion) now you make $210k. Now you're paying $2940 per year in Union dues ($140/yr increase) or $113.07 per paycheck ($5.50/paycheck increase).
You get $9860 of that $10k raise.
