VOLUNTARY AUTHORIZATION FOR DEDUCTION OF ASSOCIATION DUES

I hereby authorize UMHS to deduct from my wages each month excluding July and August, and to pay the House Officers Association (HOA), an amount equal to the monthly dues and assessments, or representational fees or charges that may apply in lieu thereof, as a result of my representation by HOA. I further direct that such amounts so deducted shall be turned over each month to the Director of the HOA for and on my behalf.

I authorize these deductions for, and in consideration of, the Association's activities in representing me for collective bargaining and other purposes, and without regard to my present or future membership in the Association.

This authorization and assignment is made voluntarily and of my own free will, and shall be irrevocable for the term of the applicable contract between the HOA and my employer or for one year, whichever is the lesser, and shall automatically renew itself for successive yearly or applicable contract periods thereafter, whichever is the lesser, unless I give written notice of my desire to revoke same to the HOA and Employer on a form provided by the Employer.
