I was a seasonal helper for past 5 years in Hagerstown, MD. First 4 years no dues was withheld, last year dues was deducted. All helpers were impacted. No helper had any prior knowledge that this would happen, nor did they sign any authorizations for dues. I filed a complaint with National Labor Relations Board, region 5 for my area. Both UPS and Teamsters were wrong. They agreed to a settlement in which ALL seasonal helpers working under the Local 992, nearly 500 employees, will get ALL DUES AND INITIATION FEES RETURNED, PLUS INTEREST! This will be finalized in the next 14 days, as I have just returned the signed documents to NLRB this moring. If you were a seasonal helper, you must contact the NLRB for your region to file a complaint. It is free, but they can only act when charge is filed locally. You will get your money back, if the same thing happend to you.
