The purpose of this form is:
• If you are not a member of the New Zealand Rugby Players Association (NZRPA) and Rugby Players Collective (RPC), for you to apply for membership;
• If you are already a member of the NZRPA and RPC, to confirm your membership details;
• To provide your authority for the NZRPA and RPC to receive personal information about you (particularly from the NZRU, Super Rugby Clubs and Provincial Unions); and
• To confirm that you have been informed about the Collective Agreement and collective bargaining and that you acknowledge that the RPC represents you in that process.
I authorise any agency which holds personal information about me to disclose that information to the NZRPA and RPC (including details about my remuneration). I also acknowledge that the NZRPA and RPC hold personal information about me and may receive additional information in the future. The NZRPA and the RPC shall collect personal information for the purpose of personal development, support, advocacy and welfare. I am entitled to access that information and to request correction of it - and it has been explained to me that the NZRPA and RPC will keep that information confidential.
I authorise the NZRPA to disclose personal information about me to third parties which have a direct relationship with the NZRPA for the purposes described above. The NZRPA will only disclose information to a third party on the condition that it may not be disclosed further and will be kept confidential by that third party.
I acknowledge that I have been informed about the collective bargaining process, and how it may affect me and the terms of my employment. I confirm that the NZRPA and RPC have the authority to represent me in that bargaining.
