Opt Out of Your Public Sector Union

It’s your paycheck. Union membership is your choice. Government workers in the United States now have a voice and a choice whether or not to support or pay money to a union.

Get started by learning more below about your rights under Janus in your state, or check out our explainer video for more information on the issue.

State Resources

A Rhode Island-specific informational website has been set up at MyPayMySayRI.com. If you need more details or help with understanding your rights, we invite you to check out that site.
