    What Local? Each Local sets their own initiation fee in its bylaws, it varies; for example, it's $200 for full time employees in my Local.

    $1,146 sounds awfully high (and a somewhat random number).

    I'd call the union hall and to find out what is up. My guess is that there is a disconnect between the union and UPS as to of when to stop taking them out.

    don't know what AFTAX is, but your weekly dues are cheap. Your initiation + dues are still cheaper than my dues.

    Was paying 50 a week for initiation fee, then a 40 dollar one and then one Final 6 dollar payment. Aftax is life insurance stuff and legal plan.
