So I'm searching all over the forum and I can't seem to find a solid answer for my questions. So I apologize if I'm asking questions that have already been answered. 1. I just viewed my paycheck today and they deducted $60. $35 for Union Initiation fee and $25 for Union dues. I thought they didn't deduct both fees at the same time. So...I'm left with $49 now. 2. How much are Union dues and initiation fees at the St. Paul Hub in Minnesota? I remember the HR rep telling us how much it was, but I don't remember. 3. What does the Union do for me? Is Minnesota a right to work state? Do I have to be part of the Union? Thank you all in advance.
