Southern Region Membership Card
I hereby request and voluntarily accept membership in SOUTHERN REGION, WORKERS UNITED, a/w SEIU and I agree to abide by its Constitution and Bylaws. I authorize SOUTHERN REGION to act as my exclusive representative in negotiations with my employer about wages, hours and all other conditions of employment.
I understand that while I am free to revoke my membership in SOUTHERN REGION at any time, I will continue to pay a service fee equal to the dues SOUTHERN REGION members pay in accordance with the time limitations set out in the next paragraph, and I authorize my employer, or its successor, to deduct from my wages, weekly, such monies accordingly, and to remit the fee to SOUTHERN REGION. This authorization shall be irrevocable for one year from the date signed below, or until the expiration of my union’s contract with my employer, whichever is sooner, and shall be automatically renewed for successive one year periods from the date signed below. I can revoke this authorization by sending written notice via U.S. mail to the SOUTHERN REGION not more than 20 days and not less than 10 days before (1) the expiration of each yearly period, or (2) the expiration of my union’s contract with my employer.
I have read this membership card and I understand that the provisions regarding deductions of charges shall be effective only when a first contract covering my workplace has been voted on and ratified by the members.
