60 dollars a month. I think it's very steep, but I am saving a ton in insurance costs per month in comparison from my previous district, so even with paying that every month I still come out ahead. My district's union is very strong and one of my grade level teammates is a rep. It's definitely worth it to join here. My previous district had a "teacher's association" but they had NO power whatsoever and did not offer any sort of support to teachers at all other than trying to negotiate salary, so it wasn't worth it to join. I didn't and never regretted it. They didn't offer support with working condition things like planning/duty free lunch, RIFs, unfair firings, admin abuse, legal council...so there would really be no reason to join.
