1070E Davis Teachers Association (Carlson)
803.6000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES; UNION SECURITY; AGENCY/FAIR SHARE FEE; DUES DEDUCTION/CHECK OFF; Religious Objection
The Association's requirement that in order to obtain a religious exemption an employee must show proof of membership in a religious body whose teachings oppose payment of dues or agency fees is a valid requirement; p. 5, warning letter. Six-month limitation period runs from the date the employee becomes aware that agency fee will be deducted from the paycheck and not the date that the agency fees were actually deducted from the paycheck; p. 2, dismissal letter. Hudson notices and reductions are not required for religious objectors, because Hudson notification and reduction of service fees are only afforded to agency fee payers; p. 8, warning letter. Requirement that payment be made in one lump sum to a charitable organization is arguably more onerous than the procedure of monthly dues deducted from emmployee's salary. Lump sum payment rule would organization is arguably more onerous than the procedure of monthly dues deducted from emmployee's salary.

803.6000: UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES; UNION SECURITY; AGENCY/FAIR SHARE FEE; DUES DEDUCTION/CHECK OFF; Religious Objection

Statute permits exemption only on basis of employee membership in religious body whose traditional tenets include objections to joining or financially supporting employee organizations. R.A. dismsissal upheld. more or view all topics or full text.
