803.01000 – In General
Exclusive representatives are under no obligation to accept agency fees from non-members. The test for standing is whether the union accepted an employee’s agency fee payment. Once a union collects an agency fee payment, it is presumed that the union has accepted the payment and the employee has standing to challenge the fees. In order to dispossess an employee of standing, a union must take an affirmative act to completely relieve the employee of agency fee payer status.
