Opt-out of Your Union

Step 1: Provide Basic Info

If you are a public-sector worker in Ohio, you can initiate the opt-out process below to end your financial support of your union by entering your first and last name, email address, and the Ohio county in which your employer is located.

Once you have entered that initial information, a dropdown menu will appear from which you can select your employer and then your union.

After you complete those steps, we will provide you with the unique opt-out requirements for your specific union as well as relevant instructions on how you can complete the process, which varies from union to union in Ohio.

Step 2: Submit Opt Out Notice
