Re: New Calendar
...in some union states, teachers are not required to join the union. HOWEVER...since contract language and salary is negotiated collectively at the district level, the union can charge non-members a fee for the services of the negotiation team. They call it "Fair Share". Fair Share ends up being almost the same amount as a year's union dues anyway...just enough below the amount to be claimed that a non-member is not being strong-armed into joining against their will.
