Chapter Dues and Fair Share
Illinois is a Fair Share state, meaning all bargaining unit employees will have dues deducted from their paychecks upon entry into the unit. Article 12.09 A. states:
The Board, having been provided the appropriate showing of interest by the Union, agrees that all Employees covered by this Agreement who are not members* of the Union,…so long as they remain non-members of the Union, shall pay to the Union each month their fair share of the costs of the services rendered by the Union that are chargeable to non-members under state and federal law. This provision shall be in effect for the duration of this Agreement.
*Members of the union are bargaining unit employees who have signed and returned a membership card to a Chapter executive board member. Members of the union and members of the bargaining unit all pay dues. Only members of the union can vote in Chapter and Local elections and on contract negotiations issues.

Your Weingarten Rights
Know your rights! If you face discipline on the job, you have the right to union representation. These are your “Weingarten Rights,” protected by the Supreme Court. Tell your supervisor:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request that my union representative, officer, or steward be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions.
