Faculty Association Dues are Tax Deductible

The CAUT Defence Fund is the national strike fund that the Faculty Association belongs to in addition to our local strike fund. The Defence Fund, which has a minimum target of $35 million, plays a major role in supporting Faculty Associations when they strike or are locked out. It is essential to maintain a sustainable Defence Fund, especially given several recent strikes and growing labour unrest across Canada. In October, the Directors of the Defence Fund moved to increase the baseline dues to $7.00 per month effective December 1, 2023. In addition, there is a Defence Fund policy to trigger an additional temporary dues increase when the fund declines below $33 million for two consecutive quarters. Given this, effective December 1, 2023, Defence Fund dues will be $8.00 per month and until the Fund is at $35,000,000 for two consecutive quarters, at which time they will revert to the baseline (currently $7.00).
