Membership Authorization: Yes, I want to join with my fellow employees and become a member of Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers Local 400 (“PFT”). I hereby request and voluntarily accept membership in PFT and I agree to abide by its Constitution and Bylaws. I authorize PFT to act as my exclusive representative in collective bargaining over wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment with my employer.
Dues Deduction/Checkoff Authorization: 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 PFT an amount equal to the regular monthly dues uniformly applicable to members of PFT. This authorization shall remain in effect and shall be irrevocable unless I revoke it by sending written notice via U.S. mail to the PFT during the period not less than thirty (30) days and not more than forty-five (45) days before the annual anniversary date of this authorization. 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, even if I have resigned my membership in PFT.
I have read and agree to make the voluntary PAC contributions described below.
I, hereby authorize the Pittsburgh Public Schools to withhold from my earnings a voluntary, per pay period contribution to the Political Action Fund of the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers. This deduction shall continue at the same amount from school year to school year unless I increase, decrease, or revoke this authorization. This authorization is signed freely and voluntarily and not out of any fear of reprisal, and I will not be favored nor disadvantaged because I exercise this right. I understand that the PFT Political Action Committee is engaged in joint fundraising efforts with the AFT, the AFT PA, and the PA AFL-CIO and will use the money contributed to make political contributions in connection with federal, state, and local elections. Contribution or gifts to PFT-PAC are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Contributions cannot be reimbursed or otherwise paid by any other person or entity.
