I authorize my Employer to deduct from my Gross Wages the amount set forth in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (“CBA”) with the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters as a voluntary contribution to the applicable Political Education Committee to be used for political or legislative purposes. The contributions are to be paid by my Employer to the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters in the manner provided by the current CBA.
This authorization is voluntarily made, upon the specific understanding
- That the signing of this authorization and the making of contributions to the applicable Political Education Committee are not conditions of membership in my Local Union or International Union, nor are they conditions of my employment;
- That I may refuse to contribute without any form of reprisal; and
- That the applicable Political Education Committee may use the contributions to make political contributions in connection with federal, state or local elections.
This authorization shall remain in effect unless I give written notice to revoke such assignment to the Employer and the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters.
Contributions are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal or state income tax purposes.
