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.
What is this 'top out'?
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.
We are at 3x. That is high enough for me.
Says the guy who gives $150 a week to united way.....
The IBT is hardly a charity.
No. There just tho ones responsible for you making over $34 an hour instead of $13 an hour........
But its tax deductible.
Yeah...my ability and work ethic have nothing to do with it...
I know that.Do you?
Do you give $150 a week to United way?
So you support abortion?
Only a simpleton would equate the two.
Is that a yes?
They support planned parenthood.
Too bad you can't have a discussion without name calling
Just asked you a question.
