    Im new and they’ve been taking out union dues for the past 12 weeks or more. I’m really confused.

    Some places take out weekly instead of monthly. Call your union hall and ask.......Google the phone number

    It’s $25 a week, isn’t that a little strange?

    You pay an initiation fee when you first join, that's what the $25 a week is. After a few pay periods it will stop depending on how much the initiation fee is.

    be happy its not every day.........consider telling your supervisor to have payroll stop taking dues and initiation fees out of your pay and you either go on down to the Union Hall and pay or pay your Union Steward....This will avoid UPS payroll messing up your checks.....control your money......welcome to the jungle !

    This is totally incorrect information. Get with your steward with union dues issues, they can possibly help you. Your steward should have educated you on the process at the time you signed up to become a union member, so that you would know what to expect. This has nothing to do with UPS payroll.

    It’s easier for me to pay the union directly bevause its a hassle to get refunds.

    Don’t know. I got a 4 month refund from one local and paid two months to another. Now I usually pay the first Friday of the month, unless I don’t work the first week.

    No...transfer.....4 months dues went to old local (automatically) Old local refunded dues to me. I paid new local 2 months dues owed.

    Not really. Got a phone call one day saying “I refunded you 4 months dues instead of forwarding them.” Took about 3 minutes. It worked out best that way.
     
  15. Or when you quit.

    Initiation fees? What Local are you? You can check the bylaws, and by all means own a copy of them, and your answer is there.

    When i was hired in August, my initiation fee totaled $235 and they deducted that $25 weekly for 9 weeks, until the last payment of the initiation fee of $10, then the regular union dues of $47 monthly have been deducted on the first paycheck of the month,

    There was a guy in my building that elected to forego "dues checkoff" and paid his dues, by personal check annually....not sure why.

    It actually cost him his eligibility in our last Local election.

    Perhaps that's what your buddy @What'dyabringmetoday??? is referring to???
