How To Join


  1. Download the SF1187-Payroll Deductions form found below.  SEE NOTE FOR INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.  This form doubles as our enrollment form for the union, while authorizing the OCC to deduct dues.  
  2. Fill out boxes 1, 2, 4, and 5.  (Do not use your social security number!)
  3. Fill in the appropriate Chapter number where indicated, as well as in Section B.  Consult the Chapter Officers page on this website if you are uncertain about the number.
  4. Do not fill in the 'regular dues' amount in the middle of the form.  This will be filled in by the agency.
  5. Fill in the email addresses requested at the very bottom of the form.  There are certain materials that NTEU cannot send via OCC email.  
  6. Sign and date the form.  
  7. Scan a copy of the signed form.
  8. Send a copy of the scanned form to the appropriate Chapter President, as listed in the Chapter Officers page.   
  9. When the Chapter President acknowledges receipt of the form, he/she will provide a physical address where you can send the original.
