7.03- The equivalent of taxes for members whose objections to paying taxes or equivalents to unions under a previous collective agreement between the contracting parties are maintained at the Dalhousie University Scholarship Fund, unless the member concerned requests in writing that the taxes or their equivalents be paid to the association. The counter-value of taxes for those who, under a previous collective agreement between the contracting parties, have challenged the payment of taxes or their equivalents to the unions and whose objections have not been upheld, is paid to the Dalhousie University Scholarship Fund in force the month following the signing of this collective agreement, unless the member concerned requests in writing that the taxes or equivalents be paid to the association. A newly appointed member or a member who entered the bargaining unit for the first time may ask the association committee, within ninety days of the effective date of the first appointment or registration in the bargaining unit, to object to the payment of the taxes or equivalents covered in paragraph 7.02 above. This objection is, for religious reasons, that the member is a practicing member of a recognized religion that has a doctrine against paying taxes or the equivalent of taxes to unions; or conscientious objection is motivated by the fact that the member has a refusal of conscience against the payment of dues or their equivalents to trade unions. The Board reviews each of these objections, along with evidence or other documents that the member may present in writing or in person. To consider these objections, but only for this purpose, the committee is chaired by the president of the Atlantic School of Theology. In any event, if the president of the Atlantic School of Theology could see that he should not lead the committee for personal reasons, a chair is appointed with the agreement of the parties. The committee makes its decision by a simple majority, including the chair. If an objection is accepted, the counter-value is paid to the Dalhousie University Scholarship Fund, provided that the total number of members who pay the non-value of the fees to the Scholarship University Fund does not exceed 16 or 2.5% of the total number of members of the bargaining unit (in the latter case, each fraction resulting from the 2.5% calculation is rounded to the nearest total). , based on the lowest value.
