The teamsters are the ones that inform the company of the dues to deduct. This was a local 25 foul up. I had a guy come up to me that lost 700. He gave almost twice as much to the union than he took home in one paycheck. There were countless zero checks out there.Imagine working all last week for nothing...
2 weeks before Christmas.
I'm not sure who's to blame, UPS or the Teamsters, but there should have been a better plan.

You can't blame this exclusively on the Teamsters.
UPS should have said, "No, we're not going to do that to our employees. Go back to the installment plan".
Giving hundreds of employees a zero dollar check didn't raise a red flag? Are you serious?
I disagree.The company doesn’t have that option. Union dues are requested by the IBT. It’s their responsibility to make sure they don’t take advantage of prospective employees who sign a form stating they agree to pay 32 or 50 per week until their initiation fee is paid.
The company complied with the local’s request per the agreement between the company and union.
How do you make less than $40 a month?We have a few preloaders where the union fees were more than what they made that week. The union had the loaders write the union a personal check to remain in the union.
You are wrong it was a UPS foul up not Local 25. Now you sound like management. I don't know how long you have been with UPS but it has happened in our building before. You should ask your management team why they withheld giving Local 25 the dues applications to Local 25 and why they have multiple people who never had dues taken out of their checks? Management actually argued with me that the local has access to UPS payroll to deduct the dues out of members checks. Which is not trueThe teamsters are the ones that inform the company of the dues to deduct. This was a local 25 foul up. I had a guy come up to me that lost 700. He gave almost twice as much to the union than he took home in one paycheck. There were countless zero checks out there.
