I had to hire an attorney to help me quit CTA. Good news: after receiving my lawyer’s letter reminding them they are breaking constitutional law by keeping me prisoner (Janus v. AFSCME) they’ve now set me free and my resignation is valid as of February 10, 2021. HOWEVER! CTA says I still owe them my dues ($124/month) until July, and I will need to write another letter to request a revocation of my dues deduction. So, according to them, I am no longer a member, but will still be forced to fund their political campaign with my money. Forwarded the letter to my attorney. Life lesson kids: your union does not care about you, just your money!
