Update, 12/3: Jon Caldara highlights the “sinister” response of certain union officials to the Every Member Option refund message.
Are you a Colorado public school teacher? Or perhaps a friend or loved one? If so, do you or (s)he belong to the union? Are you interested in getting back your money that the union spends on politics? If you answered Yes to these questions, then the following video about the Every Member Option (EMO) political refunds is for you:
You can cut to the chase and go straight to the CEA’s EMO online refund request page, or find all the information you’ll need for the EMO refunds from CEA and local unions on the Independent Teachers website.
Or go ahead and listen to an EMO overview and some frequently asked questions on a 3-minute podcast by clicking the play button below (if you can’t see the player, or it doesn’t work, click here to listen):
In any case, the information is only valuable if teachers know about it and act on it by December 15. (Teachers in the AFT union have a political refund, too, but no deadline to request it.) Then they’ll have to wait to next school year. So please help spread the word!
