Labor Unions and Mandatory Dues by John F Trent


Those that don't pay their Union Dues must pay an Agency Fee. Once an employee decides not to pay their dues they have, 1. Forfeited their rights to vote will not be able to participate in the membership vote on the tentative Agreement when we go to negotiations for our new collective bargaining agreement. You will have no say as to what happens as a non-member who has not paid their dues. 2. You will have to pay back dues from the months you have not paid as a debt. So you are not saving any money but will build up unnecessary debt. These are lawful provisions and are intended to ensure there are no ‘free riders’. These are facts which reflect the significant advantages employees who are members of the Local enjoy whereas those who elect to only pay the agency fee do not and those who refuse to pay timely will likely be putting their job at risk.
