I'm curious...why do you pay the union dues if you get no benefit from it?

Two reasons: First, CTA provides legal representation for members accused of misconduct. In 15 years I've never needed it, but I've been colleagues with one who has. Second, membership gives me the right to go to rep council meetings and tell them what a horrible job they are doing. You should see their minds explode when I suggest CTA should try bribing republicans instead of democrats, that an open borders policy really isn't good for schools, that taking a stand on medical marijuana isn't any of CTA's business.
