    I'm a part time worker, and was involuntarily inducted into the union. Being a union member is not practical in my situation. I am wonder who the proper people to contact are in order to get the ball rolling on my departure from the union. I've already wrote the secretary-treasurer of my union local, but have not heard anything (unsurprisingly). Is human resources able to get me in contact with who/whatever does the payroll, or does anyone know how to change payroll deductions?

    So you want a union job but not be in the union. Unless you are in a RTW state, you ain't going nowhere scab.

    I'll get the ball rolling for you. When you're at work, look for the door. Walk through it. Don't go back ever. Done.

    Legally you cant be forced to be in a union in ANY state... However, because PA is not a right to work state, i would still be required to pay whats called an 'administrative fee' for my representation in collective bargaining and processing of complaints. this fee is less than the union dues..... scab

    Legally you cant be forced to be in a union as part of terms of employment in ANY state... However, because PA is not a right to work state, i would still be required to pay whats called an 'administrative fee' for my representation in collective bargaining and processing of complaints. this fee is less than the union dues. You guys will still get your money from me, dont worry

    It's not about the money, it's about your attitude. You don't want a union job, don't apply/take a union job in the first place.

    Also...Don't call someone willing to pay and participate in the union a scab. You are the scab, one who obviously doesn't know what a scab is.

    It's not a union job unless you choose to be in the union, and make it a union job.... Its just a part-time job to some people

    A part time union job. Spin it however you want. Part time/full time has no bearing on union participation. It is a union contract.

    Im not going to be receiving any benefits from the union. They kick in after a year, and i wont be at UPS for a year... It doesnt make any sense for me to pay into something that will not benefit me. If it were your money, you would practically try and save every cent you could, or you're either a fool or a liar. Scabs

    and legally you cant be required to be in a union as part of terms of employment. Put your blinders on however you see fit

    It's actually called an agency fee...

    Legally,you cannot be required but you will have to pay the agency fee. So thank you for being a scab and still paying agency fees to keep your job.
