Heard a rumor that our shop stewards don't have to pay union dues any truth
I just ask cuz our stewards don't do and one kissed mgmt. ass
Go to your ba and settle it with your local. Im a steward and I pay dues. Why is it that people that dont think their steward does a good enough job or they claim they kiss managements butt come on here and complain? Have you talked to your steward and expressed your feelings to them about the job you believe their doing or not doing? Do you attend the union meetings at your local? Are you willing to run to make a difference? What are you willing to do to make a difference other than come on here and air your disgust? Not trying to jump on you but so many people come on here and gripe about their steward or local, but they are not willing to do what it takes to make a change. Its your union. Be a solution and not the problem.
Our stewards don't pay dues but its kind of a reward from the local for their service. Small money matter and never been an issue (although the assistant stewards still pay dues).
There are some locals where the stewards don't pay dues and others where their dues are refunded.
Any steward who is doing the job solely for the free dues is clearly doing it for the wrong reason.
Varies according to the local's by-laws. Stewards in my local pay full dues.
Our stewards do not pay union dues. Considered compensation for all the time they spend representing union members and union meetings off the clock. I agree with this practice.
We don't pay our stewards here because we don't want people doing it only for the money. You need someone that is passionate for their membership.
usually we only get to trips to Costa Rica a year .
For all the BS my rep has to put up with he shouldn't have to pay dues.
So do I.
That.... would thin the herd.
My Local's by-laws, don't specifically address whether they are "paid" or not.
That, is left up to the executive board. We have paid, and (non-paid) alternates.
And "paid".... is a misnomer.... because then, they would be considered employee's.
But.... all stewards stand for election every 3 years. Same as the officers and agents.
I have always paid x 2 1/2 my hourly rate per month not to mention listening to the peeps bitch about the dues the week they are deducted from their check.
I'm a steward and I pay my union dues. Wouldn't have it any other way
Please let me pay your dues!
That perk doesn't even scratch the surface of lost family and personal time compensation.
Credit and debit cards accepted.
(Take 2% off for cash)
Plus the harassment and extra wok loads to prevent you from properly representing a union member.
I pay it monthly but get a check usually in January for the previous year.
Elected Stewards don't pay in 104 but some of us do by choice. It's not worth it to do the job for the free dues and you'll make plenty in overtime with grievance meetings etc.
