Payroll Union Dues Deduction Set for Jan 1

Dear GFD Members,

Beginning January 1, 2014, you will have the option to have union dues deducted through City of Greensboro payroll.  We have been approached by a number of non-members who were interested in this option and it is now in place.  

For any GFD personnel who are former union members that left the union due to non-payment of dues or who fell behind in your dues and did not leave in good standing, the union is offering a ONE-TIME, two-month window of “dues forgiveness.”  This means you have until the last day of February 2014 to sign up for dues deduction and your back-dues will no longer be owed.  

If you would like to sign up please follow this process:

1.    Fill out the attached form and forward it to Penny Pruitt in Fire HR.  (Your start date is Jan 1, 2014 and your amount is $15.50 bi-weekly)
2.    Email Captain Dan Faulk to inform him you will be joining.  Captain Faulk will forward your contact information along to President Coker and he, or another union officer, will contact you to set up a convenient time to fill out your IAFF application and your insurance form. 

Happy Holidays and Stay Safe!
