    Ive been a part timer for 3 years and 3 months, when I looked at my paycheck today it shows that my union dues jumped from $22 to $31. :confused2:

    Normally, they go up every time you get a raise. I don't know why yours went up so much, maybe they skipped a week for some reason.

    My union dues are set by my local at a certain number of hours pay per month for part timers and a larger number of hours pay (3.5? - the multiple went up recently) for full-timers. Maybe there was a vote authorizing an increase in your local, and you didn't get the memo.

    Some one forgot to deduct our dues from this week's check.
    Not the first time this has happened.

    Dues should be 2 and half times your hourly rate per month. If you make $10 an hour you should pay $25 per month divided by how many weeks that are in that month.

    Dues increase anytime the union feels the news. I do believe its suppose to be 2 1/2 times your hourly rate. It might be different for each local though.

    Just flies right over your head.....

    P.S. to admin: this is a better fit on the general union sub-forum, no?
