Department of the
Air Force, 911th Airlift Wing, Coraopolis, Pennsylvania and Local
2316, American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO, Case
No. 99 FSIP 54, August 3, 1999 (Release No. 423).
The AGENCY essentially proposed--
[T]hat employees be permitted
to initiate the revocation of dues withholding by submitting Form
SF-1188 "or other written notification" to the financial Service
Office "in a timely manner," which would forward the revocation
to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, and provide copies
to the Union and the Civilian Personnel Office. Revocation would
become effective the first full pay period following October 1,
"unless the employee would not have completed [one] full year
of deduction at that time," in which case, the termination would
become effective the first full pay period following the [one]
year anniversary date.
The UNION proposed--
[T]hat employees initiate
dues revocation by submitting Form SF-1188 "to the Union President
or alternate Union Officer." Revocation would become effective
the first full pay period following [one] year from the date the
first deduction occurred, and the first full pay period following
the anniversary date for successive years beyond the first year.
If neither the Local Union nor the AFGE National Office can determine
the anniversary date, revocation would become effective the first
full pay period following October 1.
The PANEL ordered the parties
to adopt the UNION's proposal.
