right to work law

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by seasonal helper, Nov 8, 2014.

  1. Indiana passed the right to work law in 2012, during orientation yesterday I was asked to leave for refusing to join the union, with any luck maybe ill get my money without having to work.

  3. I was accepted for seasonal driver helper, its a 5 week assignment that ive been doing for years. Indiana passed the right to work law in 2012, I think it wrong to pay union dues for this job, im not against unions. Talked to a union steward at ups and he told me I didn't have to join! Then why did UPS management throw me out of orientation for not signing the union papers? denied work

    Prove they fired you for refusing to join the union...if you can't...nothing you can do. Go work somewhere else.

    Show me where the law states that. Show me where UPS can't fire you at will for any reason.

    You can't prove that UPS walked you out because you refused to join the union. Your word against theirs....go find other employment.

  16. Im retired, I only do it for the exercise during the winter, otherwise I don't work. I thought about that, but there were about 40 people in the room and nobody backed me up. The lady said "here at ups you have to join the union" Talked to a teamster union steward and he said I didn't have to join!!! I wonder if management is getting a kick back from union!!
     
  17. yep, I was fired and hired the same day....lol
     
  18. yep, its pretty simple, I went in for orientation as I was already hired, refused to sing the union form, informed I had to join the union, and escorted out right in front of 30 other people
     
  19. Indiana is a right to work state now, if the contract wasn't modified after march 14 of 2012 you would have to join, since the contract was changed/modified after that date, UPS has to follow the law, I will let a lawyer decide just how Kosher it is. Indiana law state that lawyer fees would be paid for by UPS if they did in fact create a misdemeanor.
