    If you are not getting paid, how can you pay dues?? When you find out, be sure to update this thread.

    its funny how many trolls are on here when the whole point of this site is for trying to get information and to help one another out but i guess some of you must be in bed with management or are management ..

    Why you got fired? You can fight for your job

    @tallsaul , you should get a withdrawal card from the union. It means you won't owe dues for the months you don't work. Hope it isn't long.

    You know what hat I find funny? Why did you find the need to stop paying union dues. Are you in a right to work state?

    So you want the union, who you don't support, to support you now because you got fired?

    How many times are you going to post this looking for answers? You posted the same thing yesterday only leaving out that you don't pay dues and started with your story.

    We have cameras in the parking lot and they had used them for employees in the past. Management probly told the union not to help you, but both of you should of got fired, not just you. You could get your job back. If there been really anal with you, you should bring a lawyer. Good luck. There was once a fight in the parking lot and both got fired. Then later on, they got there job back. They send one driver to another building and they kept the other one in the same building.

    File a police report on the guy who threatens you and intimidated you. Also go get a lawyer and tell him you been working in a hostile work environment.

    if you take out your retirement money you will take a big hit with taxes and penalties. around 40% total. better to get another job to tide you over until this is resolved.

    i can watch those all day long. the knock out videos are great too. people just fold like a rag doll when they are knocked out with one punch. nothing like the movies.
