A portion of UFF-FIU's dues are used for the daily operations of our chapter, including publications and mailings, food and beverages for chapter meetings & member socials, research, advertising and UFF-FIU "swag" for our members.
A larger portion of our dues are collected by UFF to fund the statewide local and to pay for our membership in
larger unions. Membership to these broader unions fund political action campaigns at the state and national level as well as leadership trainings, union conferences, and other important activities. Our chapter can also apply for additional funds from UFF to subsidize our recruitment and training efforts here at FIU.
