All IBEW members pay union dues. So, why do they take their own money and give it to the IBEW? They do it because they know that the benefits and representation they receive are much more valuable than the dues they pay.Overtime pay is not used when figuring out how much you will pay in dues.
Gross pay is what you make before any deductions. If a job is advertised at $30,000 a year, then that's the gross pay. Net pay is what's left after taxes, health benefits and other deductions are taken out of your check. So gross pay of $30,000 would become something like net pay of $22,564.
The complexity of figuring OT would be horrendous, please quit being a DUMB*SS ~!!!
Local 231s dues are $28.00 per month and $1.61 for each hour worked.
They pay dues on their overtime hours too........
