Opt Out Today


Public employees are finally free to make their own decisions about union membership

For decades, government workers in many states could be fired for refusing to financially support a labor union. Thankfully, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in Janus v. AFSCME, 585 US  (2018), that public employees can no longer be required to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.

Supreme Court staff summarized the decision this way:

“The First Amendment is violated when money is taken from nonconsenting employees for a public-sector union; employees must choose to support the union before anything is taken from them. Accordingly, neither an agency fee nor any other form of payment to a public-sector union may be deducted from an employee, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay.”

Similarly, in 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Harris v. Quinn, 573 US  (2014), that “partial-public employees” like state-paid home care aides, child care providers and others were free to choose whether to support a union.

Currently, only private-sector employees in certain states can be legally obligated to pay any union dues or fees.

“Keep up the great work. I received both the email and mailer to opt-out of the union; however had already done so. Your work is the first I had seen noting the option to opt-out. Of course the unions nor the State made any effort to notify employees of the option.”

– Darla, State Employee

“Yes, finally! I’ve been asking where the dues go for over 20 years. I am signing and sending this (opt-out form) today. THANK YOU!”

– Oregon city employee

“I am a junior high teacher in California. I want to thank you for your website and the information I gleaned from it. I have decided to leave the teacher’s union due to ideological differences, and have discovered The Association of American Educators. I am very grateful. Keep up the good work!”

– Jamie

“For 28 years I have never been a registered public union member but forced to belong to the corrupt organizations without my written consent. Now toward the end of my career I might be freed from a political force that I have never agreed with…Thank you again for all your work this last decade for the working class that has been pilfered by these political organizations and have always push the political values that I personally do not/have not agreed with.”

– Oregon state employee

“I am a WSDOT employee very unhappy about having to support the WFSE political agenda. Imagine my delight when the Janus decision came down. Not being a passive wait and see person, I instructed my payroll department to cancel the union deduction from my paycheck. They complied, and I have their word in writing. I am happy to stop being compelled to donate to an agenda I don’t agree with. Maybe you can spread the word about quitting the union this way.”

– Patrick

“Thank you for the work that your group is doing. Furthermore, thank you for making the process easy, you are helping many public employees and I know we all appreciate your dedication.”

– Jay

“The union was taking about $80 out of my paycheck every month, until your organization helped me get my money back and stop these deductions. Thank you so much.”

– Jenny

“I applied to get out of the union and I haven’t paid dues since. It has been, to date, the biggest raise that the union has ever gotten for me. Thank you All!”

– Michael

“I’d like to thank you for creating a system that allowed me to collect more of my paycheck and to free me from supporting the union and what it chooses to do with my money.”

– Steven

– Evelyn

“Thank you for all your help. I appreciate your time, effort and understanding through the process of opting out of my union. Freedom Foundation equals hope and I’m grateful you are here for us who want to fight for justice…”

– Beth
