Authorisation to BECTU to deduct subscriptions from wages/salary

I authorise the BECTU Sector of Prospect to make arrangements with my employer to deduct periodically from my pay union subscriptions of £10 per month for the first 12 months (or 1% of my regular earnings if I earn less than £12,000pa or if I am rejoining) and from then on 1% of my regular earnings, up to a limit of £33.33 per month. This rate may be revised subsequently in accordance with union rules.
