Membership: It makes a difference!
On June 27, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court issued their 5-4 decision in the case Janus v. AFSCME, ruling that non-member government employees' First Amendment rights shield them from having to pay so-called "fair-share fees" to a union to cover the costs of representing them. Consequently, BU 18 employees are either a CAPT member or a non-member. Just because you’re a Bargaining Unit 18 member doesn’t mean you’re automatically a full CAPT member.
