Your process will start by sending a letter exactly like I just did below:
SENT TO: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org (payroll secretary email address withheld)
SUBJECT LINE: Union Resignation
August 30, 2021
NYC Dept Of Education
65 Court Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
ATTN: PAYROLL OFFICE
To whom it may concern:
I am writing to notify you that I do not want to be a member of the union that represents my position. If your records indicate that I am a union member, I hereby resign my membership in the union and all of its affiliates effective immediately.
The United States Supreme Court has ruled I cannot be compelled to pay any union dues or fees as a condition of my employment. I no longer want to pay any dues or fees to the union. As of this date, I revoke any dues deduction authorization that I may have signed, and no longer authorize the deduction of any union dues or fees from my paycheck.
If you, the employer, do not have a signed dues deduction authorization from me, dues deductions are not authorized under state law and by my exercising my First Amendment rights. If you refuse to accept this letter as a resignation of union membership or revocation of dues deduction authorization, please inform me promptly, in writing, of your reasons for so doing. Please also include anything that I may have signed that supports your decision not to honor my request.
