MYTH: If I am currently a member of a union, can I decide I no longer want to be affiliated with the union and request I become non-union?
FACT: Once your position has been designated as union-affiliated, you may only become a non-union staff employee in two ways:
Your job duties change significantly and you are reclassified. Your "new" position is no longer union-affiliated under one of the above-referenced exclusions; or
The union bargaining representative agrees to exclude your position from the union through negotiations.
