NEA State Dues Levels Reflective of Right to Work Standing

by

Mike  Antonucci reveals the latest dues figures for each NEA affiliate.  It is interesting to note that these dues are lower in Right to Work states, where teachers are free to resign their membership at any time.  Even with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation-won Janus decision teachers are still afraid to, or are not aware that they can exercise their First Amendment rights at any time and drop their teacher union membership.

These are the state dues levels for every NEA state affiliate for 2017-18. Add $189 to each one to account for the NEA national dues. There are roughly 13,000 local affiliates and their dues vary so widely – from zero to a lot – it’s impossible to gather them all.
