Yes, I want to join my colleagues by becoming a member of the NEA, AFT, FEA, AFL-CIO, Northeast Florida Service Unit (NEFSU), and Putnam Federation of Teachers/United (PFT/U). I hereby request and voluntarily accept membership in the NEA, AFT, FEA, AFL-CIO, NEFSU, and PFT/U, and agree to abide by the Constitution and Bylaws of all organizations.
Annual Payment Authorization: Yes, I authorize payment by cash, credit card, electronic funds transfer or the Putnam County School District to deduct from my pay in each pay period a pro-rata portion of the annual dues, fees and assessments required for membership in the NEA, AFT, FEA, AFL-CIO, NEFSU, and PFT/U. I fully understand that the annual dues required for membership in the six organizations are subject to periodic change by the six governing bodies of the organizations. This authorization continues annually regardless of my membership status, unless (a) I revoke this authorization upon 30 days’ notice in writing sent via email, fax or US mail to the employer and employee organization according to Florida Statue 447.303, or (b) my employment with the school district ends.
I understand that this agreement is voluntary and is not a condition of employment, and that I have the legal right to refuse to sign this agreement without suffering any reprisal.
