The NUHW has not earned the right to take your money. Forced union dues are UN-American. Deauthorizing removes the “union security clause” that forces you to pay and forces your employer to TERMINATE you if you don’t. Yes, you can be fired if you do not pay union dues.
Money that should go for gas, groceries or childcare. Money you worked hard for.

Removing the union security clause allows those who support the union to pay dues. If you decide the union does not provide better working conditions, better pay, better better benefits and a better all around working environment for you then don’t pay. You keep your job and your money.
What is a DEAUTHORIZATION?
Deathorization Election: This is a vote to remove the forced unionism clause or union security clause from the union contract. A deauthorization election has only one purpose and effect: to remove the forced-unionism clause from the contract. The remainder of the contract, including all wages and benefits, remains in effect and the union continues to serve as the exclusive bargaining representative, whether or not the employees pay any dues or fees. Even after a successful deathorization, every employee remains fully covered by the contract, whether or not he or she remains a union member or pays any dues.
