Why Opt Out?
The decision on whether to become or remain a union member is a highly personal and important one. Many of our members have chosen to opt out of their union for political, religious, or other personal reasons. To decide whether you want to remain a member of PSEA, you should know:
- PSEA has $34.2 million in liabilities, which is more than 50% of its yearly revenue.
- This reduces the amount of money the union can spend helping its members. According to the latest federal filing, PSEA spends only $1 out of every $5 on representing teachers and other members. The other $4 is spent on things like politics, lobbying, and union overhead.
- Hear why a teacher in the North Pocono School District decided to leave PSEA.
- Or how PSEA told tried to prevent its members from earning money.

Who represents me after I resign from my union?
Under current state laws, your union is still required to represent you, but if you are not satisfied with your union representation, you and your coworkers could change it.
