why do you need a link .if the hourly wage goes up the dues go up and when they went down so did dues .
DUES = 2 1/2hours pay been that way 12 years I believe or maybe since last strike
Except our local.. That added a building fund fee to our dues.. But never got a building until recently when they merged..
2 1/2 times our hourly rate.. Plus 8 bucks!!
It was right after CF went belly up. They had to get some of the $$ back that they lost.
it was suppose to go toward a strike fund as I remember it .
Additionally, Hoffa re-linked with the AFL-CIO in 1994 during the freight strike. The strike fund was broke and the AFL-CIO offered necessary financial backing for that strike.
There was some kind of rumour ciculating, i think from this TDU rumour, that YRC was gonna be able to extend this MOU stuff for 2 years with no vote.
I just got official word that this is untrue.
The next contract will be done as it has been done in the past.
