Dora Cervantes
General Secretary-Treasurer
International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO
9000 Machinists Place
Upper Marlboro, MD 20772-2687

Dear Ms. Cervantes,

I hereby resign as a member of IAM 141

http://www.iam141.org/docs/COiamagree.pdf) My resignation is effective immediately. I will continue to meet my lawful obligation of paying a representation fee to the union under its “union shop” or “agency shop” agreement with Continental Airlines.

Furthermore, I object to the collection and expenditure by the union of a fee for any purpose other than my pro rata share of the union’s costs of collective bargaining,
contract administration, and grievance adjustment, as is my right under Ellis v. Railway Clerks, 466 U.S. 435 (1984). Pursuant to Teachers Local 1 v. Hudson, 475 U.S. 292 (1986), I request that you provide me with my procedural rights, including: reduction of my fees to an amount that includes only lawfully chargeable costs; notice of the calculation of that amount, verified by an independent certified public accountant; and notice of the procedure that you have adopted to hold my fees in an interest-bearing escrow account and give me an opportunity to challenge your calculation and have it reviewed by an impartial decision maker.

Please reply promptly to my request. Any further collection or expenditure of dues or fees from me made without the procedural safeguards required by law will violate my rights under the Railway Labor Act and/or U.S. Constitution.

Please consider this objection to be permanent and continuing in nature.

Sincerely yours,


Your name
