Filing Labor Charges

    Months ago, we were charged double dues. 142, versus,71. The same pay week I was given a -71 reimbursement check. The Teamsters have apparently withheld this money and refuse to return it.
    I called the union hall and they said I was SOL, yet I calculated my dues and it was clearly not owed and that money is mine. This came shortly after our local and/or UPS was under fire for deducting entire union initiation fees for temporary part-timers (which by itself is a scam), leaving them with 0$ paychecks at Christmas.

    The only remedy is filing charges with the state wages/labor board, correct?

    If you have exhausted all the union options it would appear the state labor board is your final option.

    How do you know if this "overcharge" was remitted to the union? UPS, not your local union, makes deductions on your pay.
    Have you filed a grievance?

    The local union will not allow me to file since it is an error by the union. That is their word.

    Only if you're willing to accept one side of a story...

    Somehow....

    They prevented you from filing a grievance ?


    An improper deduction from your paycheck is a contact violation.

    So your check was cut for net $71. Ask the company where the check is. Why would the union have it.

    So your original post is wrong. Your check was not $-71. It was net $71. CORRECT

    So that was reimbursement from the company deducting union dues twice. So what is your issue.

    So answer the question. What is your issue. Your check was net $71, not $-71. Your the one that started the post. Do you not know how to read your check.

    Let me guess, when the check was cut. You were fired for the 15th time. You saw the check on Upsers. You decided not to say anything until 6 months later. Believe or not it is a easy fix. Print out the check, given it to the Manager and tell them you never received this check. They can send it to payroll and they can find out if it was cashed and if not. They can reissue a new one.
