eDues & Your Union Membership
eDues is our answer to the state’s attempt to decertify our union by taking away your ability to decide for yourself how to spend your paycheck and to decide for yourself how you will pay your union dues. Under SB256/HB1445 our employer is no longer allowed to conveniently deduct your union dues from your paycheck.
Consequently, you must enroll in eDues to recommit to your union membership.
Remember, the goal of the legislation is to weaken our union, and reducing union membership is part of the legislature’s playbook. We need to be sure we don’t allow that to happen.
What you will need to enroll in eDues:
- Your NEA member number
- Your NEA member number will be delivered to your school/worksite mailbox beginning the week of April 19th.
- Your bank’s ROUTING NUMBER
- Your CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBER
- The link to our eDues enrollment site: https://edues.nea.org/eDues/righthere.jsp.
You can also use a savings account to sign up for eDues. You can usually find your routing and account number on your account statement or by signing into your online banking. You can also get your account information by contacting your bank.
Once you have your NEA Member ID and your banking Information go to this link, enter your Member ID and Zip Code, and follow the instruction to enroll. You can watch the video on the right for additional information.
