I understand that the Collective Bargaining Agreement covering my job includes a union security clause, which requires union membership as a condition of employment. Under the law, I understand that I may satisfy this requirement in any one of three ways. 1.) I can become a member in good standing by paying the Union’s initiation fee and monthly dues and other charges pursuant to the Local Union bylaws; 2.) I can simply pay uniform initiation fees and monthly dues, and choose not to become a member; 3.) I can become a service fee payer and pay a percentage of the initiation fee and monthly dues, based on the amount the Union’s collective bargaining expenditures bears to the Union’s total expenditures. This means that I would pay for representation in collective bargaining, but not contribute my share of the Union expenditures for civic, charitable, and other activities not directly related to collective bargaining. A service payer is not a union member. If I decide to become a non-member service fee payer, or if I wish to pay full fees and dues without joining the Union, I must so notify the Union within thirty (30) days from the date on this application. If the Union does not hear from me within thirty days, I will be treated as having decided in favor of full membership. In any event, I will be required to pay the appropriate initiation fee and monthly payments as a condition of employment. If I decide to become a non-member service fee payer, I will have the opportunity to challenge the correctness of the Union’s calculation of the service fee payment. I will be given information as to how to do this upon my request, as well as a written explanation of the computation upon request at the Union’s office. I understand that I can only participate fully in Union affairs if I am a member in good standing.
