Regarding CTA agency fee payers - we sincerely hope that if you are an existing agency fee payer, you have sent in a request for your rebate. The November 15th deadline has passed and if you haven't filed by now, you will not get your rebate this year. If you are a first time filer, you may resign from the union after the 15th. However, you will not get the full amount, but rather a prorated one, depending on how long after the 15th you file. For more information, please go here.
