NEMSA Withdrawal Card System Eliminates Dues Accrual During Approved Leave of Absences From Employment
A Withdrawal Card is simply an agreement made between a member and NEMSA that during an approved leave of absence, union dues will not accrue during that absence. NEMSA dues are calculated monthly, in certain employer payroll systems they are re-adjusted for a 26 pay period cycle. Due to the increasing automation of employer payroll systems, members sometimes find themselves coming back from leave and having large amounts of dues withdrawn from their paycheck. The Withdrawal Card when approved will stop that accrual from happening. Union dues are the responsibility of every member. A person who does not work during a given pay period or month still owes dues for that period. A properly approved Withdrawal Card can temporarily halt the dues requirement for members on approved leaves.
