4. You have the right to change or defy your union, but it is limited. In order to remove or “de-elect” the union so that it is no longer your exclusive negotiator in the workplace, you can launch a petition provided you have the support of at least 30% of employees.  The Public Employe Relations Act of 1970 is the most important law that has given government employees the right to organize, such as government, municipal and school employees. In addition, public school teachers are subject to collective provisions relating to the revision of the Public Schools Act and Law 84 of 1988. Until June 2018, the law required 84 non-unionized educators to pay agency fees to the union that represents their school district or other public teaching position (this law became Section 2215 of the state administrative code).  Here are six of the most important labour rights for teachers. Their local collective agreement may depart from state law by providing for either fewer restrictions or additional restrictions on membership and the date of membership. To find out when you can resign, always check your contract first.
If you would like help resigning outside your MOM window, which many employees have done, please contact Free to Teach at 833-969-FAIR (3247) or Info@FreetoTeach.org. 1. You have the right to join a union. A full-fledged trade unionist has the opportunity to vote for officers and ratify a collective agreement. Full membership of the EU can also include additional benefits such as discounts and training that are not available to non-members. However, members` union costs may also be spent on political and ideological issues. Government unions fund dozens of political interest associations that may not correspond to the political views of the self-employed or conservatives. Maintaining the affiliation clause in a collective agreement (contract) requires workers who are covered by the contract to maintain their union affiliation for the duration of the contract.  The clause applies to workers who are members at the time of signing the contract or who may later join the union. Pennsylvania Act 88, which governs negotiations between boards of directors and unions, states that maintaining membership is a negotiable issue.
Act 88 provides, just before the contract expires, a 15-day window in which workers can leave the union.
