Union dues are not deductible as charitable contributions for Federal Income Tax purposes
I hereby apply for membership in Teamsters Local Union No. 8 (hereinafter "Union") and I agree to abide by its Constitution and Bylaws. By this application I authorize the Union to act as my exclusive bargaining representative for purposes of collective bargaining with respect to wages, hours and other terms and condition of employment with Pennsylvania State University (hereinafter "Penn State").
Effective immediately, I hereby voluntarily authorize and direct Penn State to deduct from my pay each and every month, regardless of whether I am or remain a member of the Union, the amount of dues and assessments certified by the Union, and as they may be adjusted periodically by the Union. I further authorize Penn State to remit such amount and direct such amounts so deducted to be turned over each month to the secretary/treasurer of such local union for and on my behalf. I recognize that neither this authorization nor its continuation is a condition of my employment.
This voluntary authorization and assignment shall be irrevocable, regardless of whether I am or remain a member of the Union, for a period of one year from the date of execution of this authorization or until the termination date of the collective bargaining agreement between Penn State and the Union, whichever occurs sooner, and for the years to come, unless I give Penn State and the Union written notice of revocation during the fifteen (15) days before the annual anniversary date of this authorization or, during the fifteen (15) days before the date of termination of the collective bargaining between Penn State and the Union, whichever occurs sooner.
