A contract provision under which employees who do not join the union are required to pay a collective bargaining service fee instead. This service fee is usually the same as monthly dues. In some states public workers choose to pay service fee based on a percentage of the Unionís budget spent on representing the bargaining unitís time and money spent on organizing and political action, not considered to be directly representing members.
