Just fiished reading the thread about the raising of the monthly Teamster dues. Since the contract states (I think) that our monthly dues should be twice our hourly rate, I am curious, what does the rest of the nation pay in union dues? Here in Norcal, it's $73 a month. I think we are paying for a strike that happened 15 years ago, and then something else, and then something else, etc. Not quite the $56 it should be. Please tell what area you are in.
