I got a letter in the mail a week ago from the union local 952 saying that my initiation fee for going part time to full time was never paid. I went full time in 2004. That was 11 years ago. I called payroll and they are getting together my pay check history together so i will find out soon if i didn't or not. My question is does anyone know how much was the initiation fee was during that time? The union is saying it was $605. Also when the union is taking out initiation fees every week do they take out union dues on top of the initiation fees for that period of time? I think it goes they take out the fees and after you the fees are paid they start taking union dues.
