    From what I have been reading here this double deduction is not an isolated incident. It looks as though it may be a more widespread problem. Be sure to check your pay stub for this week to see if your dues were deducted again. I checked mine tonight and I was double dipped too. Called my steward and he told me that it was a UPS payroll error, not a Union mistake. You are protected against such shortages under article 17. which includes the following language:

    Wages for properly selected vacations, in all instances, will be paid to the employees no later than the
    workday prior to their vacation. If the employee does not receive his/her vacation check, the Employer
    will make all reasonable efforts to provide the check the following day including delivery by Saturday or
    Next Day Air. Other shortages involving more than thirty dollars ($30.00) for full-time employees, and
    fifteen dollars ($15.00) for part-time employees, will be corrected and the payment will be made
    available to the employee at his/her reporting location on his/her second scheduled workday after. If the Employer fails to make the payment available on the employee’s second
    scheduled workday and the shortage was the result of the Employer’s error, the employee will be paid an
    additional amount equal to one-half (1/2) of his/her daily guarantee at his/her regular hourly rate for
    every full pay period in which the shortage is not paid after the second (2nd) scheduled work day, until

    Be sure to notify your supervisor at start time if you have been shorted on this weeks paycheck.

    When I was union, our BA told us that any dues issues were the union problem, because UPS reports on the hours worked and the union reports back how much the dues are.....and since that theres no penalty pay....granted it was 2 years ago but even last year the changed how they figured dues (changed rates and monthly) and it caused errors bc the local didnt tell the report back the correct numbers

    Our employees pay monthly, The local is responsible for making deductions, if something's wrong, it's cause they messed up.

    I think its safe to say, they both can make mistakes on this issue.

    Definitely, I didn't want to imply that one side or another doesn't make mistakes. We all know that isn't true.
