The Janus v. AFSCME decision requires new administrators and administrators in Agency Fee status to opt-in to the Associated Administrators of Los Angeles to become active members of the bargaining unit. It is important for everyone to opt-in and pay the monthly association dues of $40.84. Active members include both classified and certificated administrators. Certificated administrators are those on the LAUSD certificated Master Salary Table (G), with the exception of “Confidential” administrators. Classified management personnel are identified by class in the Unit J contract. Administrators may become active voting members of AALA by completing a Member Authorization Form, consisting of application, salary deduction authorization and an optional Political Action donation.
Payroll deduction of dues continues as long as the administrator’s employment in an AALA bargaining unit position ends or s/he revokes it by sending written notice via U.S. mail to AALA during the period not less than thirty (30) days and not more than sixty (60) days before the annual anniversary date of authorization or as otherwise required by law.
