IDAHO TEACHERS: Teachers in Idaho who wish to withdraw union membership may use this letter. Call NWPE at 1-800-380-6973 or email us through our website contact form for more information.

WASHINGTON/OREGON TEACHERS: Washington/Oregon teachers wishing to withdraw union membership may use the sample letter
here. (Please modify letter as needed.)  Objecting agency fee payers should send their yearly union objection rebate letters by certified mail or return receipt and save their proof of mailing in case a dispute with the union should arise over eligibility for the dues rebate.  Letters must be submitted according to union timelines. There are no deadlines or annual notifications with which teachers must comply to become religious objectors.  Religious objectors are entitled to send 100% of their union dues to a nonreligious charity.  Contact NWPE at 1-800-380-6973 or email us through our website contact form for more information on exercising agency fee payer or religious objector rights.
