Did you know that if the union is voted in, the union will ask you to pay dues and other fees? In some states, you may have to pay dues or fees to the union to keep your job.
It’s true. If the union contract includes a union security clause – common language included in union contracts – you may be required to pay union dues or fees as a condition of your employment. This means that the union could demand that you be fired if you fail to pay union dues
Every union is different, but most unions set their fees as a percentage of an employee’s pay every month. The more you make, the more you pay the union. (The union sets the dues rate and decides when to increase dues.) Consider how that would add up over the course of a year – or your career.
