PTI UPSEU Local 1222P Terms and Conditions

I hereby designate UPSEU Local 1222P, its officers and representatives as my exclusive agents for the purpose of collective bargaining with respect to wages, hours, and conditions of employment, and agree to obey the working rules and Constitution, By-Laws, policies, rules and regulations of UPSEU Local 1222P.

    I hereby authorize and direct my employer to deduct from any wages and pay over to UPSEU Local 1222P such amounts as my membership dues, including initiation fees (if owing any by me), as are now or hereafter fixed by the Union during the effective period of authorization.  I hereby understand, intend and agree that I have executed this checkoff authorization independent of and not conditioned on the existence of the union security provision in the collective bargaining agreement and it is my intention, understanding and agreement to have this checkoff authorization continue and be effective even if the union shop clause be declared inoperative by reason of de-authorization election or for any other reason whatsoever.

     This authorization and direction shall be irrevocable for a period of one year or until the termination of the collective bargaining agreement between my Employer and the Union, whichever occurs sooner; and I agree and direct that this authorization shall be automatically renewed, and shall be irrevocable for successive periods of one year each or for the periods of each succeeding applicable collective bargaining agreement between my Employer and the Union, whichever shall be shorter, unless written notice by registered mail is given by me to the Employer and the Union not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior to the expiration of each period of one year or of each applicable collective bargaining agreement between my Employer and the Union, whichever occurs sooner.

Member Beck Rights - You have a right to be a nonmember of the UPSEU Local 1222P and nonmembers have the right to:  1) object to paying the fraction of Union dues and fees that are not germane to the UPSEU Local 1222P duties as the bargaining agent and to obtain a reduction of fees for such non-germane activities; and  2) to obtain from the UPSEU Local 1222P sufficient information to enable you to decide whether to object to the UPSEU Local 1222P’s fair share dues and fees equivalency calculation; and 3) to be told the UPSEU Local 1222P’s internal procedures for objecting items 2 and 3 may be obtained by written request addressed to the UPSEU Local 1222P at 3555 Veterans Highway, Suite H, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779.  You should be aware, however, that exercising this option of choosing to be a nonmember means you would not have the right to vote on your contract or to participate in the development of contract proposals or local UPSEU Local 1222P elections.  You will also lose other benefits of UPSEU Local 1222P membership.  UPSEU Local 1222P hopes you will choose to become an active member and strengthen the UPSEU Local 1222P’s ability to represent you and your co-workers, rather than weakening the union and making it more difficult to represent you.  In our democratic Union, the decision is yours.
