I'm a new hire for preload and was told that my union status would be immediate and I would start paying dues right away. My second pay stub comes in and no dues. Nada. I talked to my rep and he said he'd talk to the business rep but he doesn't come in for another week. I'm going to call the union directly and try to get this BS sorted out. Is this common? And any suggestions on how to handle it quickly? I dont want to have to pay my missed dues in a lump sum. Plus with the COVID pandemic I'm worried about what may happen if I'm not protected by the union if I get sick etc etc.
