Actually, all public unions are under attack from folks who want to take away members’ rights to pay dues as we currently do -through payroll deduction. This means that if you currently pay dues through payroll deduction, you are at risk of losing your membership and the protection it provides. In response to this threat, our state organization, TSTA, is encouraging all locals (like BTA) to flip all existing members from the district-run payroll deduction method to the TSTA-run Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) method.
For detailed information, check out the presentation we prepared for the 3/26 general membership meeting. We’ll be sending out flyers and emails to explain the process as the campaign date approaches.
To flip yourself or a colleague, follow the link by clicking the “Come and Take It” picture above. You’ll need your membership ID number and your routing and account information. Don’t have your membership ID?
