Building a Just and Vibrant Society

By joining together in union, SEIU 503 members have won incredible victories—including increasing our pay and benefits and improving our workplace conditions. In states where more public employees remain members of the union, salaries are higher for all employees because the union has the power to negotiate from a position of strength.

We have strength in numbers. Please complete the following form to join tens of thousands of public service workers and care providers who make Oregon a great place to work and live. By doing so, you will commit to maintaining your membership for one year, or paying a non-member fee equivalent. Dues are 1.7% of your salary + $2.75/month. Your full name, network address, and a timestamp of your submission will serve as your signature.

Please enter your physical street address here, not a P.O. box. There is a space for a mailing address on the next page, if different from your physical address.

Please use your personal email if you have one, since some employers limit union communication via work email. If you don't have a personal email, work email is fine. If you don't have an email address, call us at 1.844.503.7348 to sign up over the phone.

Yes, I want to join with my fellow employees and become a member of SEIU Local 503
(“Local 503”). I request and voluntarily accept membership in Local 503. This means I will receive the benefits and abide by the obligations of membership set forth in the Constitutions and Bylaws of both Local 503 and the Service Employees International Union (“SEIU”). I authorize Local 503 to act as my representative in collective bargaining over wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment with my employer, and as my exclusive representative where authorized by law. I know that membership in the union is voluntary and is not a condition of my employment, and that I can decline to join without reprisal.
I request and voluntarily authorize my employer to deduct from my earnings and to pay to Local 503 an amount equal to the regular monthly dues and other fees or assessments uniformly applicable to members of Local 503. This authorization shall remain in effect unless I revoke it by sending written notice via U.S. mail to Local 503 during the periods not less than 30 days and not more than 45 days before either (1) the annual anniversary date of this agreement, or (2) the date of termination of the applicable collective bargaining agreement between the employer and Local 503. This authorization shall be automatically renewed from year to year unless I revoke it in writing during a window period, even if I have resigned my membership. This authorization is voluntary and is not a condition of my employment, and I can decline to agree to it without reprisal. I understand that all members benefit from everyone’s commitments because they help to build a strong union that is able to plan for the future.

In the event payroll deduction from my employer is not available or is not deemed practical by the Union, I authorize SEIU Local 503 to make withdrawals from my checking or savings account, in accordance with the authorization provided below or to another account I provide and authorize separately. I am authorized to make decisions about the account provided to the Union. SEIU will notify me of the transition to direct pay at the current mailing address on file with SEIU prior to initiating the first payment via debit card, credit card, checking, or savings account, as authorized below.

I hereby authorize SEIU to initiate a recurring, automatic electronic funds transfer with my financial institution beginning on the date listed in the transition notice provided to me in order to deduct from the account listed below (or separately provided) amount of 1.7% of my gross earnings, and issue fund payments at a prorated amount up to $2.75 per month, except that the total minimum deduction shall be no less than $2.30 per pay period and the maximum deduction shall be no more than $150 per pay period. Because the dues deduction is based on a percentage of gross earnings, the dollar amount deducted may change each month based on payroll dates and if my hours of work or rate of pay changes, and I agree to not receive any advance notice before the dues payment is deducted as long as the amount is between $2.30 and $150 per pay period. My authorized deductions shall be made based on the gross pay amount in the paycheck immediately preceding the pay processing date of the current transaction and shall be made one (1) business day after each pay processing date designated by my employer.

The dues amount may change if authorized according to the requirements of the SEIU Local 503 Union Bylaws or the Service Employees International Union Constitution and Bylaws. If this happens, I authorize SEIU to initiate a recurring, automatic electronic funds transfer in the amount of the new dues amount when notified by SEIU in writing of the new amount and with at least ten (10) days’ notice before the next funds transfer date. In the case of checking and savings accounts, adjusting entries to correct errors are also authorized. I agree that these withdrawals and adjustments may be made electronically and under the Rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association. This authorization shall remain in effect until I revoke my authorization in writing or with another permitted method.

I acknowledge that failure to pay my dues on a timely basis may affect my membership standing in the Union, as set forth in the SEIU Local 503 Bylaws.

Contributions to SEIU are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses.

I voluntarily and knowingly authorize the State of Oregon, or my employer’s state-contracted fiscal agent, to provide SEIU Local 503’s Designated Secure Payment Processor (DSPP), my HCW/PSW UID, and the information for the bank account (bank account number, account holder’s name and routing number) on file with my employer (“Account”) that I have designated to receive the proceeds of my paycheck via direct deposit, and for my dues and/or other contributions to be deducted from this account one (1) business day after each pay processing date designated by my employer. If my employer makes direct deposit of my paycheck to a checking account and a savings account, I hereby voluntarily and knowingly authorize my employer to provide to Local 503’s DSPP the information for the checking account and for my dues and/or other contributions to be deducted from this account one (1) business day after each pay processing date designated by my employer.

I understand that after the DSPP receives my Account information, SEIU or its designee will make reasonable efforts to contact me to confirm the accuracy of the Account information provided by my employer at least 10 days in advance of making the first electronic funds transfer from my Account.

I also acknowledge that the bank account information is only as accurate and complete as I have previously provided to my employer. Neither the State of Oregon nor my employer’s state-contracted fiscal agent is responsible for the accuracy or completeness of the bank information provided. Furthermore I knowingly and voluntarily waive any claim against the State of Oregon or my employer’s state- contracted fiscal agent with respect to any claim arising from the disclosure of my bank account information to the SEIU Local 503’s DSPP.
