|Subject||One Time Adjustment for PEF Dues/Agency Shop|
|Purpose||To explain an additional dues/agency shop deduction|
|Affected Employees||Bargaining Unit 05 employees
represented by the Public Employees Federation (PEF) who:
Received an annual salary less than $75,000 prior to the retroactive salary increase
Received a retroactive salary increase on the
September 13, 2000 (Administration) or September 21, 2000 (Institution)
paycheck and paid a PEF dues or agency shop amount of $24.62 (the current
biweekly maximum) or $29.09 (maximum for pay basis code 21P)
Are active or on paid leave when this dues adjustment is processed
Checks dated November 8, 2000 for employees paid on the
Administration cycle and
November 16, 2000 for Institution cycle employees.
When the PEF salary increases were processed, the
biweekly dues maximum of $24.62 and $29.09 should not have been in effect.
To compensate, a one time retroactive dues adjustment to recalculate the
dues/agency shop for the September 13th and September 21st
paychecks is being processed.
OSC will calculate an adjustment on all earnings subject to dues/agency shop.
OSC will subtract the amount paid in PEF dues on the September 13, 2000 or the September 21, 2000 from the adjusted amount to arrive at a "one time additional dues amount". This amount will be reflected in the "regular dues deduction code" for the period. A separate deduction code was not created for this one time adjustment.
Example: On the September check, an employee
(pay basis code ANN) received a gross check of $4,756.01. The employee
received regular earnings of $2,402.12, retro holiday pay of $10.07, retro
OT of $108.22 and retro earnings of $2,235.60.
Notify affected employees of this adjustment.
