1.2 Authorization of Dues Deduction

1.2.1  Certification of Authorization for Deduction

All employees in the Bargaining Unit represented by the Association may voluntarily join the Association and pay dues, initiation fees and general assessments, as well as payment of any other Association membership benefit program sponsored by the Association (hereafter referred to as “payroll deductions”) as determined by the Association. It is the responsibility of the Association to maintain a record of employees who have given their written consent to join and pay dues to the Association. The Association will certify to the County the names of employees who have given their written consent and the amount of such payroll deductions to be deducted.

1.2.2 Payroll Deductions

The County agrees to deduct the periodic payroll deductions from the paycheck of each employee who the Association certifies as authorizing the deduction. All sums deducted by the County will be remitted to the Association in an expedient manner at the intervals requested by the Association, together with the names of each employee for whom the deduction was made. The County will implement any change to an employee’s payroll deductions in the first full pay period following notification by the Association.

If an employee member in the Bargaining Unit desires to revoke, cancel or change prior dues deduction authorization, he/she will direct that request to the Association. Any such dues deduction revocation, cancellation and/or change will be effectuated by the County only after the Association provides the County with written direction for such revocation, cancellation and/or change.
