How to opt out of union
Permalink   


My son who is 16 has no idea what he was doing and opted into the union. They made it sound great- well  the free chips they gave and the offers of lower kings island tickets won him over until he started getting almost 18 taken out every pay check! W  The kid only works 4-5 hours a week!   what can be done about this? its ridiculous to have HALF of your pay check going to union dues at 16!

If store is union you have to pay into the union. If you don't want union then you'll need to find another job. I recall a similar post to this not that long ago. Are you sure you're not the same individual. It is not illegal nor a scam to force employees to join a union job. It's only $75 for three months or $10 every other paycheck. If you didn't want a union job then why did you join?

If you are an active employee you must pay union dues. To be active you must do a minimum of one 4 hr shift a month. it is not ridiculous to have union dues every check. Find another job. Don't bi-tch about it.

 In some states, joining the union is mandatory.  I think California is an example.

Yes, when hired, they slip you a form to sign up for the union.  Very difficult to opt out but possible if you are persistent.

Google to see if your state is a "Right to work" state or not.  I think that means you can opt out of the union but enjoy the benefits.

If your son is just using Kroger as a stepping stone to bigger and better things, I think he should try to opt out of the union too if possible.

I pay the union dues for medical insurance and pension benefits and it works fine for me.

Ask your union rep what percentage of your dues is "donated" to left-wing politicians of a single party that begins with "D," and it is highly unlikely that they will give you a stright answer. Then ask yourself if political donations will ever improve your life, or just reduce your desposable income.

That is correct, it is now federal law that you have the right to opt out of the corrupt union, even in non right to work states. Instead of giving your money to politicians and "hard-working" union officials, save and invest it for your retirement.

In commie states, you are required to pay unoin dues.  If you doint watch out, they night represent you.

In "right to work states", you don't becuielk the union is toothless, indifferente, and has banker's hours becuase **** you.

My state is turning pr urple a little more every day, except the the unouni  rep is a night stockre becauses **** you.

This next part is important, and I typed it quite a lot of few times tjust to be sure.  This job is driving me to alcoholism, and I was going to make some other meaningful statement.

Unions are dead in America, and any kind of benefits they may offer are like to be derided as COMMUNIST NONSENSE.  

The union is complely and toally beyond worthless, much like my spellchjechker.

UI got distracted on YToutube.,

Unions are for people with real jobs with real benefits and full time hours.

That';s.... ... not.
