    Our dues are 2.5 our hourly rate so if someone gets a bonus they not paying enough taking away from our union. People getting bonus should be paying more in dues instead of paying less then someone with 5 years

    Damn I really really really really hate to agree with him but for once he is right.

    If you make $15 a hour and then get a $300 bonus on top of that. You're still only paying $37.50 in union dues.

    The bonus is eating away at the union almost as much as JH and DT are eating away at it.

    I think the bonus is figured into the equation. I pay $13/week in dues and base pay is $10.35/hr. So I’ve been paying $52/month which is like 5x hourly pay.

    How long have you been employed? That $13 may include initiation fees.

    I was talking about show up to work bonus not driving bonus. So now people with 5 years are making less then new hires but paying more in dues. How is that fair?

    With a $300 bonus that comes out to be about $23 an hour. I think its more like people with 15 years are making less than new hires.
