Authorization for Payroll Deduction & Representation
I hereby request and accept membership in WASHINGTON STATE COUNCIL OF COUNTY AND CITY EMPLOYEES/AFSCME Council 2, and its affiliated local (Union).
I authorize the Union to act as my exclusive representative in collective bargaining with my employer over wages, hours of work, and other conditions of employment and compensation.
I hereby voluntarily authorize and direct my employer to deduct from my pay each month, the amount of Union dues and fees as certified by Council 2. My employer shall pay the amount deducted each month to Council
2. I understand that my membership in the Union, and this payroll deduction authorization, is voluntary and not a condition of my employment.
I understand that I can cancel my union membership at any time. Whether I am a union member or not, this payroll deduction authorization is irrevocable for a period of one year, and year to year thereafter,
unless I provide a written termination notice to the Union not less than thirty (30) and not more than forty-five (45) days prior to the annual anniversary date of this authorization, or unless I separate from employment,
whichever occurs first. This authorization has the same force and effect whether executed in writing or electronically.
Dues, contributions or gifts to AFSCME are not deductible as charitable donations for federal income tax purposes. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses under IRS rules.
