The Union shall have the dues of its members within a representation unit deducted from employees’ paychecks under procedures prescribed by the County Controller for such deductions. The deduction shall be made only after the Union certifies to the County a list of employees who have authorized such deductions. Where the County receives employee requests to cancel or change deductions, the County will direct employees to the Union. 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 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).
