The Problem

Much of the money that unions contribute to outside organizations goes to causes that many Christian union members disagree with.

If you’re part of a union, you may have felt convictions concerning the way your union dues are being allocated.  It’s a problem that many union members have faced.

Luckily, there is a solution.

The Solution

Federal Law (Title VII) allows you to “opt out” of your union dues if you have a “sincerely held religious belief.” For many Christians, this is simply a belief that it is not biblical to support groups that promote morally objectionable causes.

Christian Educators Association has put together a program with a ministry partner, complete with legal services, to make it as simple as possible to process your “opt-out” request with your union and redirect your funds to the work God is doing throughChristian Educators Association.
