Healthcare doesn't start until 9 months after your seniority date

Union dues I would assume.

Speak with a shop steward. Here union does are paid out of the last paycheck of the month. Some areas it's every week.

They may have accidentally taken to much.

Ok I understand what your saying but I’m asking is why am I paying union dues as a reg temp that is not eligible for any type of benefits yet..... so I just want to know why is money being taking if I’m not receiving anything

You receive many benefits other than just healthcare.

The wages you make are a benefit of union negotiations.

The uniforms you wear that you don't pay for are a benefit of union negotiations.

The pension contribution you receive are a benefit of union negotiations.

And many other things.


Union dues are monthly. If you do not like it feel free to seek employment elsewhere.

Think of the $72 dollars as a "one way lottery". No one ever questions why the dues are so much?

The people in the hub are who you want to ask stupid questions, they know your local, your contract and your union guy
