Clip to ScrapBook #11

to write the state and national umbrellas of your local union and request them to refund your union dues since the local did nothing to help you retain your job and was unresponsive to the district's intervention. (May not do much other than to annoy the local and serve notice that they are not doing their job--which might be a win in the revenge department.)

You can write HR and request your security clearance fees you were promised would be refunded. If there is no response in a reasonable amount of time--give it two weeks with maybe a follow-up phone call, go to the school board and ask them for the money in a public meeting. Don't go into the details of lack of support, etc.--unfortunately sounds like sour grapes and it's too late--just ask for the promised refund and show evidence (signed mail receipt) that you've presented the bill with no response. If that doesn't sound good to you, rather than standing up at a public meeting, write to the president of the school board including the signed mail receipt as ask him/her to help you get your refund.

Quite obviously you don't plan to work in the district again, but you never know who knows whom in any town and you don't want to sabotage future jobs.
