    I was let go tuesday 3 days before my 30 days probation period was up. I got online to look at my check and they took out $25 for initiation fees since I don't work there anymore should they take that out of my check? What can I do about it?

    Contact the Union.
    The Union submitted a request for the $25 and contractually, UPS has to comply.

    Call your local and ask them about getting the initiation fee back; doubt they will do that. If they don't, get a withdrawal card, that way if you ever work in another union shop, then that $25($50, if you include next week) will be credited to your account.

    Sorry about getting let go:sad-very:. Hope another door opens for you soon.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Go to your union local and request a refund----legally they have no right to keep that money as you were still in your probation period.

    Good luck with that, the Teamsters' greediness makes UPS look like a philanthropic charity.
