“The dues increase passed by the International UAW in June 2014 and scheduled for November 1, 2014 was delayed due to technical issues. The increase is one half hour per month so the dues will be 2 and one half hours per month and that deduction will begin with the check of January 28, 2015 and is NOT retroactive.”
