COPE Amount Values
I hereby request and voluntarily authorize my employer to deduct from my earnings and to pay to HPAE an amount equal to regular monthly dues or fees uniformly applicable to members of HPAE-represented negotiation units, and (if owing) a standard initiation fee.
This authorization is irrespective of my membership in HPAE and shall remain in effect and shall be irrevocable unless I revoke this authorization by providing written notice to my employer during the 10 days following each anniversary date of my employment as required by the New Jersey Workplace Democracy Enhancement Act, supplementing P.L. 1941, c.100 (C.34:13A-1 et seq.), and amending P.L. 1967, c.310. Dues, contributions, or gifts to HPAE, AFT/AFL-CIO, may not be deductible for federal income tax purposes; however, dues may be deductible as a business expense.
YES, I want a voice in governmental decisions on salaries, healthcare, retirement, and other benefits and laws affecting HPAE members.
If provided for in the applicable contract, I hereby authorize my employer to deduct from my wages in each pay period the amount designated below and to remit such deduction to the HPAE Committee on Political Education ("COPE"). I understand that this money may be used to make political contributions and expenditures as authorized by the State Executive Council of HPAE in connection with elections for Local, State, and Federal offices. The contribution amounts indicated below are only suggestions and I may choose not to contribute or to vary my contribution amount without reprisal from my Union or my employer. This authorization is made voluntarily and is not a condition of my employment or membership in the Union. This authorization may be revoked or modified at any time by my notification to HPAE in writing. This contribution is in addition to Union dues. Contributions or gifts to HPAE COPE are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Only U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents are eligible to contribute to HPAE COPE.
