Membership Rules

  1. I agree to pay to the CPSU the total of any Membership subscriptions, levies or other fees as determined from time to time by the Union.
  2. I may resign from the CPSU by giving notice in writing:
    a) when I cease to be eligible to become a Member of the CPSU, or
    b) if I am still eligible to be a Member, when I give at least two weeks notice that I wish to resign.
  3. I understand that I must pay any fees owing to the CPSU up to the date my resignation takes effect, and that ceasing to pay my subscriptions without proper notice does not comply with the above obligations.
  4. If the subscription rates are varied, I authorise the CPSU to adjust my subscription accordingly.
  5. I will advise the Union of any change to my bank account, or annual salary which affects my subscription rate, and authorise the CPSU to adjust my subscription accordingly.
  6. I understand that the payment of my Membership subscriptions, levies or other fees to the CPSU will also maintain my CSA Membership and I will be advised in writing if this arrangement is changed. I may resign at any time from the CSA by notice in writing.
  7. I understand that should I change employment, such that I can no longer be represented by the CPSU/CSA, my membership and payment details will be transferred to the union with appropriate coverage rules, and that I will pay fees and be bound by the rules of that union. I also understand that I will be notified before this transfer occurs.
