Dues Check-Off Printout

The Dues Check-Off (DCO) printout — sent to each local and state union — is a list of members who are having dues withheld.

Each local and state organization is responsible for reviewing the printout and notifying the national union of any corrections that should be made. When sending corrections or other changes regarding individual members, be sure to include the member's name, Social Security number, and the amount of dues that should be withheld.

When members transfer from one local to another the amount of dues is not changed automatically, so locals and state organizations should verify that the dues of members who transferred are correct.

Corrections and changes can be sent by letter or fax, or by making a copy of the DCO printout and marking the changes on the copy. Send the information to: APWU Per Capita Department, 1300 L Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005, or fax them to: 202-216-2650.

Changes are made automatically only when dues increases occur in accordance with the APWU Constitution and Bylaws or when locals merge.
