Wednesday evening was the monthly JEA Executive Board meeting. We held an extensive discussion on the budget. The Executive Board will be looking at possible ways to cut local dues. All UEA members will be moving to EFT to start in Fall 2012 on a 10 deduction payment plan. The monthly amount of dues will be higher, but for fewer months. JEA went to 12 months for dues deduction a couple of years ago. The reason UEA is going to 10 month deduction is because NEA requires states make payments to NEA on a 10 month plan.
There will be more information coming in November.
