Here are the facts:
- You do NOT need to use the Anti-Union website that the Rauner Administration has set up.
- CMS will automatically stop deduction of fees from fair share fee payers
- Union members do NOT need to go to the new CMS website and sign up again. By signing a union membership card, whether that was last month or twenty years ago, you have already "opted in" to being a union member. CMS provides the union with a list of all members every month based on the submission of those cards
- If you have questions about your membership status or want to change your membership status, which we certainly hope you won't, please contact the Local 705 Dues Department at 312-738-2800
The recent message from the Rauner Administration is part of Bruce Rauner's longstanding effort to divide us and, conquer your union. Let's make sure that doesn't happen. By being a dues-paying member, you are doing a great service to yourself, your family, and your community, and you don't have to do anything else today.
