MUTA President’s Message

 

Hello  MUTA members,
 

 

   The Supreme Court of the United States announced its controversial decision in the case, Janus vs. AFSCME Council 31. The Janus case challenged the constitutionality of collecting fair share fees from non-members of unions. Fair share fees are fees collected for the services which benefit the bargaining unit, including contract negotiations, contract enforcement, working conditions, legal services, staff support, community & parent engagement, etc. In a 5 to 4 ruling, the Supreme Court decided that unions could no longer collect fees from NON-members (fee payers) even though unions work equally hard on behalf of members and fee payers.

 

   Although we are disappointed in today’s decision, we are not surprised and have been speaking to members about it for quite some time. In the past 5 years, the Madera Unified Teachers Association has shown you the value of a strong teachers' union. MUTA members know that when we stand together, we make a difference. Solidarity gives us the opportunity to fight for the success of our students and our profession.

 

   MUTA will continue to advocate for our students, public education, and our profession. However, if current members decide not to pay their dues, our resources will be effected and could potentially reverse any significant improvements we have fought for in our district in recent years as well as hinder future progress. This could be devastating to our association and the students we serve.

 

   Therefore, if you share our mission of empowering teachers to transform student learning conditions, we ask you to continue to stand with us as we stand with students.

Respectfully yours,  

 

David Holder
