    My center is having their United Way drive this month and I chose to donate nothing, for a number of reasons. Well, the supervisors didn't have the testicular fortitude to ask me to reconsider to my face, so they recruited the shop steward. Not only did the shop steward hound me about it, but in his United Way pitch there was a veiled threat. I was told a donation could "alleviate some pressure in other places." Do I have any recourse from here or basically just watch my butt?

    Tell him you've reconsidered and give him a handful of pennies.

    You give only if you feel the need to give. It is your hard earned money. Tell the Sup or steward they can donate in your name if they feel the need to.

    Send 10 cents through paypal, and show the receipt you gave to UW.

    You don't have to donate and you don't have to give them a reason why your not. Just tell them that at this time you don't want to donate. If your shop steward ask you again I'd call your business agent and let them know what is going on.

    You will be once the judge signs those papers.
     
  16. They pressure you because the company gets a cut of the donation.

    Tell them you already donate to the "Human Fund"

    I post this every year when UW time comes. The picture itself is in regards to our government, but the same principles apply in regards to UPS & the UW:

    I have charities I choose to give to.
    UW is one I choose not to give to.
    That is my personal preference.
    If they keep asking, repeat the answer above.
