    What is the most amount of money one has to pay annually for union dues. When do you top out?

    You pay dues on a monthly basis. The IBT constitution has a minimum dues rate of 2.5x your hourly wage (if over $11/hr). Your Local Union's bylaws can raise it from there, or add monthly assessments (as mine has).

    You would 'top out' when you get to the top rate of a full time position.

    Are you asking for an actual $ amount?

    Well for example in my Local, it would be (as of 8-1-15):

    $34.775 ("tractor driver" rate) X 2.5 (the multiplier my Local uses) + $8 (PT assessment is $4) = $94.9375, which I believe gets rounded to $95/month.

    $95 X 12 = $1140 from 8-1-15 to 7-31-16

    The top rate for FT drivers varies slightly between the supplements/riders, and the multiplier rate could be higher in your Local.
