I've been trying to quit the union for months all I get is the runaround can someone tell me what to do
Who's paying $6/week for union dues? This better not be true. i pay $67/month on my union dues. I'm an aircraft machanic. Just about a week ago i almost lost my job due to RIF. According to our CBA the rule is first one in, last one out. i was going to be booted out coz i was the most junior. the other guy that came in 1 month before me, got to stay...AND THE DUDE IS A NON UNION EMPLOYEE, AND HE GOT TO STAY! DID THE UNION DO ANYTHING ABOUT THAT? NOOOOOO. So WTF am i really paying $67 for? These made enough money from me for the past 3 years. I need to get out and I need to get out NOW. Please help.
oh and BTW, i'm really not worried of losing my job coz i aint got nothing to be afraid of. i know i'm a good worker, i always give a 110% every single day, while others have time to browse the internet from their cellphone in the corner somewhere, i'm busy looking at maintenance instruction manuals to a certain task for the very first time. the only time i will reprimanded is...i cant really think of any reason. please help me get out of union.
Forget quitting the union, just quit kroger....
I'll tell you how my husband just got out of the union.
We sent 7 SEVEN certified letters to the union, faxed it and sent requests via email & web. NO RESPONSE. Surprsied? Yeah, me neither. Anyway after dh's anniversary date came & went he called the 800 number and bitched to them about how his union rep wouldn't call him back. He got a call within 12 hours, haha. Anyway He basicallly had to rip the union rep a 'new one' to get him to do anything. Good luck, I know it sucks.
And who is paying $6/wk?! DH was paying double that! To the people that think that isn't 'worth it' to get out? That almost $50/mo for a year is almost a mortgage payment! More than a car payment! They (the union & the government) will nickle & dime you to death if you let them.
The union I am in you must resign on the anniversary date you signed up. If you signed May 12 2011 you are eligible to cancell , quit, get out of the union on May 12 2012. Call the local to find out the rules. I would give them a written request, at least 5 days before your anniversary date. I would get a copy back that shows the date they received the request.
I work at kroger part and I am a union stewart at my full time job. I am getting out because have notice that KROGER Union don't help black people get their jobs back no matter how small the act is. But all the white people did not matter how big the act is including breaking the law. I also notice you can be a good work and if management don't like you they will lie, cheat and steal to set you up! So black people be careful! My black coworkers and I have realized that and we are covering our tracks.I
