United Way Donations

Guidelines for United Way Donations in Lieu of Paying an Agency Fee to Service Employees International Union, Local 500

Part-time faculty who have been notified by the Union that they are exempt from paying an agency fee to the Union under Article III.A.8 of the collective bargaining agreement are required to make a contribution in an amount equal to the agency fee to a non-religious charitable organization agreed to by the University and the Union in lieu of paying the agency fee to the Union. The United Way and its member charities is the non-religious charitable organization agreed to by the University and the Union for this purpose. 

If and only if you have received notification from the Union that you are approved to make a contribution in lieu of the agency fee, you can either (1) sign up for an automatic payroll deduction to authorize the University to deduct your contribution directly from your paycheck and submit it to the United Way or (2) make a payment to the United Way directly by check or through the United Way’s website.  If you opt to pay the United Way directly, you must provide FRPR with a copy of your payment receipt.
