    Did anyone else have their union dues taken out this week? Do you know why they came out a week early?:angry:

    Mine come out every week, but when it used to be monthly it was always different on months where there are 5 Fridays in the month- five pay periods instead of 4. I think it's a computer system thing probably. Even with the weekly deduction, we skip a week on the 5 Friday months. If that makes sense?

    Mine is electronically posted (direct deposit)on Thursday mornings with a memo * , so I know it isn't really credited to my account until on minute past midnight on Friday morning.

    This has been a subject for a long time for me. I have been filing grievances over the company depositing the paychecks on Friday.Payday is on Thursday the Union continues to ignor the grievances that the company is bouncing the direct deposit persons paychecks everyweek.

    I can't understand how all of the people who have direct deposit allow the company to not pay them on payday. They are using our money and making money with it. Even if it's only 24hrs they are still using your money.

    When are you people going to wakeup.

    OUR DUES ARE DONE MONTHLY.
    Always on the next check from whenever the first of the month falls.
    However the agreement between the local & ups has a delay factor on just when the funds change hands.
    The only time dues would be taken out early would be on a vacation week check.

    Our supplement states that payroll checks have to given out by noon on Friday. Most receive them on Thursday.
    I have never had any problems with direct deposit.

    Perhaps you are the one who needs the wake up call. Pay checks are available on Thursday but are not in your account until Friday because Friday is payday. The only change that I am aware of is we get vacation check(s) 2 weeks prior to going on vacation.

    My New England Supplement says, payday is not later than noon Friday. [Article 50]

    Why don't you quote the exact language of your Supplement so we can all see the basis of your claim.

    PS
    Anyone remember Skippy from months ago when he tried to make everyone believe only actual "hours worked" counted on our paychecks, not total paid hours?

    When I started 23 years ago I was told Friday was payday but we could pickup our checks Thursday night. However we could not deposit them until Friday because the money wasn't in the bank until then. I've never read in the contract when the official payday is because one day doesn't make a difference to me.
     
  17. For those who deduct monthly the deduction targets the second paycheck of the month, as a curtesy, because for most people mortgage or rent is due the 1st of the month. So UPS takes it out as late as possible while still getting the funds in time to forward it to the union before their deadline. Payroll plays hot potato and forwards the funds to the Union right away. PS, first time visitor to this website. Hi, guys!!

    If you want to make sure you know when union dues are being taken out, I have an idea. Send a check to the local monthly instead of having dues checkoff. That way YOU control the transfer of funds. Not UPS. Not the union. I have done this for years and never have to wonder when dues are taken out of check, if they take to much or too little(ha), and never have to figure out whose fault it is. I have it set up electronically so we do not have to physically write a check and mail it. Works well for me.
