ARTICLE 7 – UNION SECURITY AND CHECKOFF OF UNION DUES

7.01     Every new employee shall, within thirty (30) days, apply for and maintain membership in the Union as a condition of employment. Every employee who is a member of the Union shall maintain membership in the Union as a condition of employment. In those special circumstances where an employee is not required to maintain membership in the Union, that employee shall, as a condition of employment, pay to the Union the dues required to be paid by members.

7.02     Dues Check-Off

The Employer shall deduct initiation fees, assessments and monthly dues from the wages of each employee covered by this Agreement. Deductions shall be made no later than the last pay period each month and shall be remitted to the provincial HSAS office within two (2) weeks after the deductions have been made or on the 15th of the following month.

When remitting dues, the Employer shall also provide:

                1.      List of employee names.
                2.     List of newly hired and terminated employees, along with dates.
                3.     Employee status.
                4.     Regular earnings for each employee.
                5.     Number of hours worked and hourly rate for each employee.
                6.     The amount of dues and initiation fees (if applicable) deducted from each employee.

On a semi-annual basis, the Employer shall also provide the name and mailing address of each in-scope employee, along with their classification, unless the employee has requested in writing to the Employer that their address be kept confidential.

7.03     The Union shall notify the Employer in writing, of changes to the initiation fees, assessments and monthly dues not less than thirty (30) days before the effective date.

7.04     Dues Payments While Assigned To An Out-Of-Scope Position

A union member temporarily assigned to an out-of-scope position will have dues deducted from regular earnings received while temporarily filling the out-of-scope position, in the same amount as before being temporarily assigned.

7.05     A Union Representative shall be provided up to a maximum of fifteen (15) minutes from her regular shift of duty without loss of pay in order to introduce the Union to the new employee, to have new employees sign authorization cards for the deduction of dues, to provide the new employee with a copy of the collective agreement, and to make arrangements for further discussions outside of work. It is agreed that this introduction will not be done at a time that would interfere with the Employer’s operation.

The Union will provide the employer with a list of individuals assigned to union orientation.

7.06     It shall be the responsibility of the employee to advise the Employer and the Union of any change of name, marital status or place of residence.

7.07     The Employer agrees to record all union dues paid in the previous year on employee T-4 slips.
