How to Opt Out of Your Teachers Union
Information for new agency fee payers (NEA/CTA)
If you are a member of CTA and considering becoming an agency fee payer, it’s a two-step process and now is the time to get started. First, you must resign from your union. Then between September 1st and November 15th, you must submit a request to receive your full rebate. (Late first-timers will get a prorated rebate.) For more info and form letters, please scroll down. Also, teachers who mention CTEN when they sign up with AAE for the first time will get a $30 discount off the regular $198 first year membership.
Information for existing agency fee payers (NEA/CTA) We sincerely hope that if you are an existing agency fee payer, you have sent in a request for your rebate. The deadline was November 15th and if you didn’t file by then, you will not get your rebate this year. For more information, please go here.
