    We may still be working but spouses may not be.
    Part time members second jobs are affected.

    Is this even an option?

    We can catch up on missed dues later.

    No we have jobs. Do we need a handout or offer a hand up to others?

    Yes, no open bathrooms on route = no union dues.

    By law, union dues are not allowed to be used for political funding.

    then we need arrests. The Union donates money to political parties. Fact. If you want to argue semantics fine.

    Trump and the GOP have currently destroyed all business in America, they’ve resorted to Communist bailouts. Trump is a Socialist when it comes to business.

    That's just dead wrong. Now you do have the right to write the union and request they don't use your dues for politics. You will see you dues lowered by 24¢.

    Dues cannot go to a candidate or campaign. Your dues may go to "get out the vote drives", "lobbying", "election information" and "public marketing". The only monies allowed to be given directly must come from a separate fund raising platform.
