***If you are teaching at another district that is CTA affiliated, then the association can
reduce your dues to “local dues” only. The association needs a copy of your CTA card
from your other school district. Please call Shari Yates (951) 222-8903 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain information for not paying “double dues.”
***If you do not attach the complete form, you will still be paying the union dues but
will not receive the benefits of being a faculty union member.
