English translation:generic union dues
Explanation:
Though I'd never heard of this before, in Spain, "Convenio" generally means "convenio colectivo" i.e. collective wage agreement. The El País link below suggests that workers not affiliate to any union pay a generic "cuota de convenio" that is then divvied up among the unions.
