Government Workers:
You have a right to leave your union.

If you’re a government worker stuck paying dues to a union you don’t want to support, you can quit. Plus, if you joined your union without being informed of your right not to join, you should also be able to stop paying dues immediately and get back the dues you’ve already paid.

Stand With Mark

Mark Janus

Government workers’ First Amendment rights were restored in 2018 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of government employee Mark Janus in Janus v. AFSCME that union membership was optional and workers could not be forced into paying fees or dues to a union in order keep their jobs.

At the Liberty Justice Center, we want to make sure government employees are aware of their rights and ensure they are free to exercise them.

We May Be Able To Help If:

  • You want to quit your union—or you already quit but are still being forced to pay dues;
  • No one informed you of your right not to join and pay before you signed up; and
  • You joined your union after June 27, 2018.
