Unit 5: Full Union Dues isn’t required

By:  Diane Benjamin

Something I found while looking for something else:  The Unit 5 contract with the Unit 5 Education Association says teachers only have to pay “Fair Share”, not full union dues.  http://www.unit5.org/cms/lib03/IL01905100/Centricity/Domain/54/contract.pdf Page #42

How many teachers know that?  Don’t we always hear not joining the union is not an option?

Teachers:  Are you sick of your union dues going to buy politicians who promised you great wealth for your vote – and lied?

Quit paying the full boat dues and only pay for union representation, not political games..

  1. Form my conversations with many teachers, they all know it. Some pay the fair share, after tenure. However, I wonder how many are ‘pressured’ into paying the full monty?
