Union contribution deducted from salaries in March

Scheduling

From that year on, public servants of prefectures, states and the federal government should also contribute

March is the month of the workers' union contribution. All employees, unionized or not, are obliged to contribute the equivalent of one day's work. The discount is made by the company directly on the payroll delivered in April. Taxation is provided for in Articles 578 and 591 of the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT).

Collected workers resource is used for two purposes. The main one is the transfer to the union institutions, which use the money to maintain their activities. A small part is destined to the Ministry of Labor, which can use the resources for union relations activities or deposit the amount in the Workers' Assistance Fund (FAT), from which the unemployment insurance and wage subsidy payments come out.

The percentage distribution of the union contribution is as follows: 60% for the trade union of the professional category to which the worker belongs; 15% for the federation; 5% for confederation; 10% for the trade union center; And 10% for the Ministry of Labor. When the category is not linked to any central, the percentage of the ministry increases to 20%.

As of this year,  public servants of prefectures, states and the federal government will also be required to contribute . The new rule applies to both commissioned and commissioned employees. The amounts are the same as those applied to private sector workers.
