California Teachers Association Prepares for Loss of Forced Dues
The California Teachers Association is preparing to lose 23,000 members, as well as 28,000 nonmembers paying forced dues in the wake of the Janus v. AFSCME decision. It appears CTA is planning to make more political contributions both on candidates and initiatives, the very issues most forced-dues payors object to. Mike Antonucci has the story in the La School Report.
The California Teachers Association has voted to slash its 2018-19 budget by more than $20 million because it expects to lose 23,000 members with an unfavorable U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME, a case that challenges the right of government unions to charge non-members for representing them.
The 325,000-strong statewide teachers union also expects to lose revenue from more than 28,000 non-members who have been paying representation fees.
