Teachers: Your salary and benefits won’t be affected if you aren’t members of the union
Yesterday I shared a video made by teachers for teachers addressing a misconception about union membership and job security.
Another mistaken belief is that an educator’s compensation or health insurance will be in jeopardy if he or she isn’t a union member. Both salary and benefits are provided by the employer—the school district—not the union. These provisions are not dependent on your union membership status.
Check out the video below from the Teacher Freedom project. Please share with teachers you know to help them understand their rights and options.
