Subject Agency Update Access to Public Employees Federation (PEF) Union Dues/Agency Shop Fee Deductions

To notify agencies of the removal of update access for Deduction Codes:

  • 233 Public Employees Federation
  • 247 Public Employees Federation A/S
Affected Employees Employees in Bargaining Unit 05.
Background PEF electronically submits union dues/agency shop deduction information to OSC weekly.   These deductions are then processed by OSC as a percentage of the employee salary.   In a recent quality assurance review of certain payments to PEF members, OSC identified instances where dues/agency shop deductions were canceled in error.   Since PEF dues/agency shop deductions are taken as a percentage of the salary paid, agency update for these deductions is not necessary.
July 16, 2004.
OSC Actions OSC will remove agency update access to Deduction Codes 233 and 247.
Agency Actions None.
