Authorisation for Deduction at Source
I hereby apply for membership of the Reserve Defence Force Representative Association and agree to be bound by its Constitution and Rules. I authorise, until further notice, the Secretary General of the Department of Defence to deduct a membership subscription at the rate of 4.5% of weekly pay (to be capped at one week in each calendar year) exclusive of payment for Security Duties, under the Scheme of Deductions for Representative Associations and to pay this amount to the Reserve Defence Force Representative Association.
I recognise that the rate of deduction may be increased or decreased by you in accordance with any revision in the rate of subscription notified to you by the Reserve Defence Force Representative Association and that all these deductions, being made solely as a measure of convenience to me, may be discontinued at any time.
I also recognise that the responsibility for ensuring that the deductions have been made from my pay and that the amounts deducted are correct, rests with myself, and that, beyond making remittances to the Reserve Defence Force Representative Association on foot of sums deducted, the Department of Defence accepts no responsibility of any kind in the matter.
