Whatever the reason, the choice is YOURS to make.
To stop your state or local government employer in Illinois from deducting dues from your paycheck and sending those dues to the unions:
Public employees who do not want to be members of a union can leave the union while continuing employment.
Union dues can cost hundreds of dollars a year. By opting out, you will no longer pay any union dues.
No. You are guaranteed any benefits provided in the collective bargaining agreement with your employer.
The Illinois Policy Institute has always been a resource for workers seeking to exercise their rights and choose for themselves whether to associate with a union. We’ve created this website to make the process easy for those who want to opt out of union membership.
