How much are ONA membership dues?
As of January 2018, Ontario Nurses’ Association membership dues are:
ONA membership dues are a flat rate—a set amount that you pay monthly, that’s it! Some unions calculate dues as a percentage of wages, including overtime, shift premiums, and retroactive pay. With them, the more you earn, the more you pay. ONA has predictable membership dues that don’t penalize you for earning more.
You can deduct union dues you pay from your taxable income. For example, if your personal tax rate is 40% (as it is for most ONA members), your out-of-pocket cost for your membership dues is just 60%. This means you pay only $58.98 per month for the protection and support of an established, professional union.
