I work at well known grocery store and pay union dues but unsure why?

At the store, as cashier, we are permitted a 5$ over/under shortage.. anything more or less is verbal, write up, suspension for 1 day, the suspended 3 days.. lastly is fired.

i was able to disprove 2 shortages but am about to be fired.. My question, if able to answer, what am i paying union dues for if they dont or wont do anything to protect me? In 11 months, ihave missed only 1 shift and called in once? Nor have ever had a complaint against me either as cashier or as operator of fast lanes. Cant halp but wonder what the heck am i paying for every paycheck?

I had to do the same thing at UPS years ago.

Basically worthless waste of money. . . though others find it good to keep the company in check when they try to mess with salaries and benefits. I would have rathered they let us opt out if we wanted to.

Because Unions like any "insurance policy" are quick to take your money, but a bit lacking in the assistance during crisis process. They look after groups as a whole to protect salaries and benefits. They don't really give a damn about the one guy in trouble scenario. They like publicity.

Why is this in the "movies" department?

Have you contacted your union rep? I would think that's what your dues pay for.
