To serve its members, UFAWU-Unifor relies on dues collected from its fish harvester members.

Funds collected by the union directly benefit members by helping to pay for things like membership travel and meetings, conventions and elections, office space and meeting rooms, and Union staff.

Every dollar sent to the union helps UFAWU-Unifor fight for its members.

Fish harvesters are required to pay a one-time initiation fee of $30.

After joining UFAWU-Unifor, fish harvesters will be required to pay union dues annually.

There are two options for calculating how much your dues will be:

Flat Rate

A flat rate of $375 may be paid before the season begins.

Variable Rate

With a variable rate, the amount that a harvester pays depends on their total insurable earnings.

Lower-earning members pay less in dues, while higher-earning members pay more in dues.

Harvesters may estimate their income preseason and pay according to the Minimum Dues Chart cart below. If your end-of-season ROEs show more was made than the initial estimate, please pay the difference.

Please refer to the Minimum Dues Chart below to calculate dues owed:

Insurable Earnings Dues
$0 – $2,500 $36
$2,501 – $5,000 $50
$5001 – $10,000 $100
$10,001 – $20,000 $200
$20,001- $60,000 $375
$60,001 – $100,000 $450
$100,001 $500


The Minimum Dues Chart represents the lowest amount of dues that a fish harvester will pay. Dues payments over the minimum amount are always welcome and greatly appreciated.
