    UPS is not to blame for this one--they deduct dues based on the information received from the union. From what I have read here I assume 710 is a very large local and it is quite possible that his withdrawal paperwork was misplaced. I am glad things worked out for him in the end and that the amount in question was relatively small.

    The only issues I have about it is that:
    1) If he didnt make a huge issue about it, he probably would never see that money again
    2) This was the second time they did that to him for a similar occurence
    3) The union hall never returned a call about it to the press.

    I can understand a huge union like 710 having some paperwork falling to the wayside, but it sounds like it's more an intentional issue than a mistake.

    That could very well be the case. Perhaps they were hoping he wouldn't notice.
