Ive been a part timer for 3 years and 3 months, when I looked at my paycheck today it shows that my union dues jumped from $22 to $31.

Normally, they go up every time you get a raise. I don't know why yours went up so much, maybe they skipped a week for some reason.

My union dues are set by my local at a certain number of hours pay per month for part timers and a larger number of hours pay (3.5? - the multiple went up recently) for full-timers. Maybe there was a vote authorizing an increase in your local, and you didn't get the memo.

our dues up here went from 40 cents an hour plus 21 dollars a month (for pt) to 1.9% (for all employees) of wage plus 21(diff for ft) dollars

Dues should be 2 and half times your hourly rate per month. If you make $10 an hour you should pay $25 per month divided by how many weeks that are in that month.

Dues increase anytime the union feels the news. I do believe its suppose to be 2 1/2 times your hourly rate. It might be different for each local though.

Not here, we had a couple months when i was union where they didnt take dues out then they took monthly dues out every week for a month straight to get caught up

Just flies right over your head..... P.S. to admin: this is a better fit on the general union sub-forum, no?

That's not what the master seniority list said.... Oh , but wait a second, since when does UPS ever get anything right?
