Rebecca Friedrichs figures 30 years is long enough when it comes to paying her dues.
A fourth-grade teacher in Anaheim public schools, Friedrichs has long had problems with the way the California Teachers Association spends the union dues it takes in and the way it goes about collecting the money from the rank and file. Now she and nine other teachers from around the state are fighting back. The 10 public school teachers allege in a lawsuit that the CTA, the largest affiliate of the National Education Association, has no right to spend the rank-and-file's money on political campaigns with which members disagree.
“It’s been a long time coming,” Friedrichs told FoxNews.com. “I’ve begrudgingly paid union fees for years.”
California teachers sue union over dues, politics

When they join the Union, aren't they giving power by proxy to the Unions? Unions never ask their members how they should spend union dues. They don't have to. This could be interesting. I'm gonna watch and see how this plays out. My money is on the Unions.
Are you seriously implying that because those teachers want transparency and accountability from their union that it's wrong?
