Yes, I want to join with my fellow employees and become a member of SEIU Local 1. I hereby request and voluntarily accept membership in SEIU and agree to abide by its Constitution and Bylaws and by the Service Employees International Union Constitution and Bylaws. I authorize SEIU to act as my exclusive representative in collective bargaining over wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment with my employer.
I recognize the need for a strong union and believe everyone represented by our union should pay their fair share to support our union's activities. I hereby request and voluntarily authorize my employer to deduct from my earnings and to pay over to SEIU an amount equal to the regular monthly dues uniformly applicable to members of SEIU. This authorization shall remain in effect and shall be irrevocable unless I revoke it by sending written notice to both the employer and the Union during the period not less than thirty (30) and not more than forty-five (45) days before the annual anniversary date of this authorization or the date of termination of the applicable contract between the employer and the Union, whichever occurs sooner. This authorization shall be automatically renewed as an irrevocable check-off from year to year unless I revoke it in writing during the window period, irrespective of my membership in the Union.
Contributions or gifts to SEIU are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses.
