Agency Fee Rebate
Take a look at that for a moment. An arbiter paid by the union decided that over 66% of the NEA's activities were not "chargeable", that they were not related to organizing or representation. What were they related to? Probably trying (and, for the most part, failing) to influence elections.
So almost 2/3 of the NEA's expenditures, and over 1/3 of the state and local expenditures, are for activities not directly related to improving my pay, benefits, and working conditions. Why are we required to pay these people at all?
If Wisconsin, of all places, can do it, California can. It'll happen some day.
