Trinity Washington University Exemption Categories

All faculty covered by this agreement must either pay membership dues of SEIU Local 500 or pay the agency fee, unless they fall into one of these exceptions:


  1. Employed by Trinity Washington University before January 12, 2017.
  2. Are members of federal, state, or District of Columbia judicial, legislative, or executive branches of government;
  3. Hold diplomatic or ambassador status;
  4. Are full or part-time employees of the International Monetary Fund or the World Bank Group;
  5. Are not paid directly by the University and whose services are instead procured through a contractual arrangement between the University and the employee’s primary employer;
  6. Are retired full-time University faculty who have emeritus status;
  7. Are appointed to teach a compressed course (i.e., six weeks or fewer in duration); or
  8. Establish that, due to the nature of their employment outside of Trinity Washington University, they are prevented from paying dues or an agency fee to a labor organization because so doing would inhibit the ability of the employee to perform services for his or her non-University employer.
