LET’S TALK: Union Dues

December 19, 2018

Paying dues is a reality for most union-represented employees. Even in right-to-work states like Arizona, most employees who are represented by a union pay dues. Dues do not “buy” or guarantee better pay and benefits—in fact, under a union contract, employees can get more, the same, or less than what they currently have. Knowing that, it’s important to look at how union dues could impact you and your finances.

LET’S TALK: Your Privacy and Safety

September 28, 2018
