What is the name of your state? NV
I have been a member of the IBEW for 7 years. I signed an agreement when I joined to not work in a non-union shop, or I could be sued.
I have since moved to a part of the country (Texas) that has no union work going on. Little to no union representation. I have a wife and two children, and must start working soon, and have no chance of getting a union sponsored job.
I am trying to drop my membership from the union, but no one at either hall will tell me how. I am getting very frustrated, and must return to work. I hate to work in a non union environment, but that is my option, at this point. And I don't want to get sued....
Anyone have any information on this subject? Would sending them a certified, notarized letter stating my intention be enough to cover me legally? Everytime I call up and ask for info, I get another person telling me that I just need to pack my family up and move to where there is more work, or leave the family behind and go to the work myself. These are not options, and anyone that thinks they are, definately has a screwed up value system..
Any advice is appreciated.
