    The point is to extort you or of money by making you think they are providing you with a service that is less serving of the members and more serving of your union leaders pockets.

    My advice, run.

    They just took $750 outta my pay check in less than a year. If there's no pay increase after this year I'm quitting the job, but the word is the pay will be $4-5 bucks higher soon so I'm waiting

    Maybe you should start organizing your fellow employees in an anti-union movement?
    Also in an anti-abusive-employer movement at the same time.

    A little organization and a call to the local TV news station might go a long way.

    There is a process called desertification, the official way to remove a union.

    somebody told me there are pluses to being in a Union

    Good Pay....which is why I make less than non-union people who do the exact same job...much less

    Good and free Benefits.....I have to buy the crappy benefits the company provides...that I can't afford to buy

    Allowed to be Lazy....they fire us if they catch us being lazy

    Good Work Conditions....which is laughable, the working conditions are terrible
