Union Due



Data for Union due is maintained in Infotype 0388 Union Due Deduction JP and in view HR Union Due Calculation Master JP (V_T5J05).

Basically, there are three patterns for defining union fees, as follows:

The formula to calculate the union due is defined by the labor agreement. Normally, the amount to be deducted is determined by applying a given rate to the base amount for calculation and adding a fixed amount to the result, as represented in the following formula: Union due deduction = base amount * rate + fixed amount

The amount to be deducted is fixed by the labor agreement.

The union itself calculates the amount due for each member and sends it in the form of a list to each relevant company. The companies in turn simply deduct the amounts specified in the list directly, without further calculation. The amount usually varies for each payroll period.

For any given payroll period, only the latest valid record in Infotype 0388 Union Due Deduction JP is taken in account.


Special care has to be taken for those employees who have changed their membership unions during a given payroll period, and must have deduction relative to both unions. In such cases, only deduction of the new union due is automatically effected. Deduction relative to the former union must be defined separately in Infotype 0014 Recurring Payments and Deductions or in Infotype 0015 Additional Payments.

Like life insurance or property accumulation savings deduction, union due deduction is not automatically transferred to the relevant union’s bank account. You need to transfer it manually.

You can use report Union due statement (RPCUNIJ0) to display the amount of union due per union.
