Notice: 2014 ONA Annual Dues Increase
As one of over 13,500 nurses represented by the ONA, you have demonstrated a commitment to nurses and the nursing profession. Nurses throughout Oregon are working to strengthen the Association in the areas of nursing practice, collective bargaining, continuing education and legislation to strengthen the position of the profession.

Effective July 1, 2014 the Oregon Nurses Association’s dues rate will increase by:
  • $2.50 per month for Professional Union members
  • $1.25 per month for Professional Association Members
  • $5.08 per month for Fair Share Payers
There were no changes to ONA Constituent Association or Bargaining Unit dues.

Why Are Dues Going Up?

ONA determines our member’s dues rate based on a process outlined in our bylaws, and this process includes a number of factors (ANA assessment, organizing fund, national AFL-CIO dues, etc.).

How is this Calculated?

Dues are based upon the average compensation of our nurses following three years of employment in all of our represented facilities state-wide (average wage of the pay step following three years of employment). If nurses are making more at this step, then our dues increase by that percentage. If nurses' wages do not average more than a 1% increase at this step, then ONA State dues only go up by 1%. In the case of this dues increase, average wages increased more than 1%, which means a dues increase of more than 1%. More detail on this process can be found in Article II, Section 5 of the ONA bylaws.

Should you have any questions regarding this dues increase, please contact ONA Member Services at 503-293-0011.
