The purpose of this fee will be to offset the employee’s per capita cost if services rendered by the Association as majority representative.

                                                    c. Termination of Employment

                                                    If an employee who is required to pay a representation fee terminated his/ or her employment with the Board before the Association has received the full amount of the representation fee to which it is entitled under this Article, the Board will deduct the unpaid portion of the fee from the last paycheck paid to said employee during the membership year in question.
