803.03000 – Procedures for Collection
Exclusive representatives are under no obligation to accept agency fees from non-members. 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. An exclusive representative may collect the entire amount of annual union dues and later rebate the non-chargeable expenses with interest to the agency fee payer.
