            A. Purpose of Fee

            If a unit member does not become a member of the Association during any membership year, during the duration of the term of the most current contract, which is covered in whole or part by this Agreement, said unit member will be required to pay a representation fee to the Association for the membership year. The purpose of this fee will be to offset the unit member’s per capita cost of services rendered by the Association as majority representative. Any public unit member who pays a representation fee in lieu of dues shall have the right to demand and receive from the majority representative, under the proceedings established and maintained in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 477 P.L. 1979, N.J.S.A., “a return of any part of that fee paid by him which represents the unit member’s additional pro-rata share of expenditures by the majority representative that is either in aid of activities or causes of a partisan political or ideological nature only incidentally related to the terms and conditions of employment or applied toward the cost of any other benefits available only to members of the majority representative.”

            B. Notification of Fee

            Prior to the beginning of each membership year, the Association will notify the Board, in writing, of the amount of the regular membership dues, initiation fee and assessments charged by the Association to its own members for the membership year.

            Once during each membership year, covered in whole or part by this Agreement, the Association will submit to the Board a list of those eligible employees who have not become members of the Association for the then current membership year. The Board will deduct from the salaries of such employees, in accordance with paragraph 2 below, the full amount of the representation fee and promptly will transmit the amount so deducted to the Association.

            2. Payroll Deduction Schedule

            The Board will deduct from salaries of the employees referred to in Section C Paragraph 1 the full amount of the yearly representation fee in equal installments beginning with the first paycheck in February and will promptly transmit this fee to NJEA.

            3. Termination of Employment

            If a unit member who is required to pay a representation fee terminates his/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 unit member during the membership year in question.

            D. Mechanics

            1. Except as otherwise provided in this Article, the mechanics for the deduction of representation fee and the transmission of such fees to the Association will, as nearly as possible, be the same as those used for deduction and transmission of the regular membership dues to the Association.

            2. Changes in the list provided for in paragraph C-1 will be in accordance with the present APD dues deduction procedures.

            1. The Board gives the Association 30 days’ notice in writing of any claim, demand, suit or other form of liability in regard to which it will seek to implement this paragraph; and

            2. If the Association so requests, in writing, the Board will surrender to it full responsibility for the defense of such claim, demand, suit or other form of liability and will cooperate fully with the Association in gathering evidence, securing witnesses, and in other aspects of said defense.
