    They will still take the dues out every week no matter how it's spelled.

    Everything I got from my union has had my name misspelled for over 30 years.
    Will call and let them know when I file my retirement papers.

    It really doesn't matter, as far as I know but if the Union felt that you should have it , then your name should be spelled correctly. I would call the office up and tell them and see if they want to send you a corrected one or not.

    In this day and age I would suggest getting it corrected. Who's to say come retirement time some bean counter who gets a bonus for every dime he can save won't say "sorry - we have no one listed like that.

    Yeah, good point Rod. To the original poster, find out why the misspelling took place. Did it just happen on the union card or is the misspelling to be found on other files(computer and paper) as well?

    Probably that dumpster crap. I bet we both know a company that would handle an inspection in a similar fashion.
