September ‘Tis Season for Colo. School Employees Who Want to Opt Out of Union Dues or Fees

September is here. In Colorado schools across the state are back in session. As I wrote a year ago today:

But today also marks the beginning of the short time frame in which union members in several school districts can choose to opt out of a year’s worth of union dues (and in a few cases — as our recent video about Colorado teachers unions pointed out — for non-union members to opt out of paying hundreds of dollars in union fees).

Speaking of the video, here it is for those who haven’t seen it before:

For teachers union members who want to stop paying the dues and perhaps find an alternative membership option, here are the 20 Colorado school districts with opt-out deadlines in September:

  • Adams County 14 (Commerce City)
  • Alamosa
  • Antonito (South Conejos)
  • Canon City
  • Centennial R-1 (San Luis)
  • Center: deadline today!
  • Colorado Springs 11
  • Englewood
  • Florence
  • Greeley
  • Huerfano
  • Jefferson County
  • Las Animas
  • Littleton
  • Poudre
  • Pueblo 60
  • Pueblo 70
  • Sheridan
  • St. Vrain Valley
  • Westminster

Go here for a complete list of membership revocation information for all teachers and school employees. If you don’t see your district listed, then most likely you are able to make your opt-out decision at any point effective with the next payroll period.
