AFSCME & SEIU Extra Help MOU Section 2.7: Payroll Deduction

The Union shall have the regular dues of its members within a representation unit deducted from employees’ paychecks under procedures prescribed by the County Controller for such deductions. Dues deduction shall be made only upon signed authorization from the extra-help employee upon a form established by Unions and issued by the County, and shall continue: (1) until such authorization is revoked, in writing, by the employee; or (2) until the transfer of the employee to a unit represented by another employee organization. The Human Resources Department and the Controller’s Office will work to provide that dues deductions are promptly terminated when an extra-help employee transfers out of union representation through a change in classification or status.

Extra-help employees may authorize dues deductions only for the organization certified as the recognized employee organization of the unit to which such extra-help employees are assigned.

Extra-help employees may voluntarily elect to have contributions deducted from their paychecks under procedures prescribed by the County Controller for the PEOPLE Fund (AFSCME) and the COPE Fund (SEIU). Such deductions shall be made only upon signed authorization from the extra-help employee and shall continue until such authorization is revoked in writing.
