Opting out of the union
Permalink   


I have asked management for a form to opt out of the union they can not seem to come up with this form, the union will not return my several calls. Anyone know where I can get this form?

You should be able to get it from your Union Rep. If they continue to refuse to get you the paperwork and you're in a right-to-work state I would contact a lawyer.

Not possible. Union second clause states if you fail to apply to the union after day 91 you're fired. Go work a non union job. Costco rings a bell. Trader Joe's. Small ma and pop corporations. Don't like it then please don't be misserable at work and just find some thing else. I work with at least two people who hate the union but won't go look for anything else. Indeed.com. Start there.

I've never heard of anyone successfully leaving the union.

It's easier to get a better job than to leave the union.

 Typically it requires putting in paperwork before the renewal period which happens around the end of the year with a written statement saying you want to leave. You need to keep copies of the paperwork and proof that you sent them. It's a lot of hassle by design.

Keep in mind that a portion of your union dues helped to elect Biden and Harris, and what a stellar job they are doing now!

I was under the impression that most union dues went towards cocaine and hookers for the president of the local union, with the remainder going to their immediate relatives in officer positions.

Please correct me if I've made a mistake.

If your store is union no you can not opt out. If you do you'll be terminated once the union audits. Union are not crooks but rather offer a binding contract of rights. I've worked enough unstable jobs to find this rather helpful.

 This is not true if you are in a right to work state like Indiana. If you are in one of those you can opt out even in a union store

The first rule in the union hand book is the right for the company to recognize the union.

The second chapter explains if employees fail to pay into the union you are terminated. If you don't want a union job quit. Walmart isn't union. Target isn't union. Costco isn't union. Same bull sh-it just depends what basket you want all your eggs in. Kroger offers a union and having done enough non union jobs it's nice to have the protection of one. I've done enough office jobs where they can fire you for just cause I'm done with it. You go on vacation and find that you have no job upon return. Yea I'm done with that b.s.

I hope that you are delighted knowing that a portion of your earnings helps to pay the officials of the corrupt union, and to help elect politicians of a single party, which has a track record of massive currency devaluing spending and raising taxes!

The first rule in the union handbook is that only union members get a union handbook.  Much like the store handbook, it's in nobody's interest for the employees to know their rights.

The second rule is that any union dues are required to be deposited as gold bullion coins in a giant vault, such that the union president (and officers in the evenings) can swim through them much like Scrooge McDuck.

The third rule is that any remaining officer position is required to be given to a direct blood or marriage relative of the president.  No exceptions.

The fourth rule is that the union is required to hold banker's hours, and ideally, federal holiday hours.  If your local union isn't too busy swimming in the vault to take your calls, they aren't doing their job.

If they don't get their laps in, they don't get paid.  No more, no less.  How can they pick up a phone unless they are getting their laps in?

Both parties are criminal, but each if horrifyingly different ways.

Only an idiot would set up a payroll deduction to feed corrupt union officials and an incompetent, disfunctional Democratic party. Inflation is already eating your paycheck, and it will get worse under the current monetary policy!

Unless you live in a state that allows you to opt out of it you can't. Seek a job that doesn't have a union. 

Only non union positions in grocery:

1st manager, 2nd manager 3rd manager, select department managers, click list. 

Sorry but that's it. 

This job would be hell without a union. Suck it up or find a new job. Please don't become a miserable brat that could care less and gets worse and worse to work with and becomes so lazy they refuse to do their job. Find a non union job or suck it up.
