Hi, as a USPS employee, are you guaranteed to see a Union steward even if you are not a union member?

Yes. Just ask. Rules and protections apply to all.

But once you've availed yourself of union help, you should sign up. If you're a CCA, might as well wait until you pass probation.
We decide which is right; and which is an illusion. I've got blisters on me fingers!

The union can get into a lot of trouble if allegations of misrepresentation are proven. That would be against the union's own rules and I do not think that a rep would risk it. At least in my experience.

Just because you are paranoid does not mean that they are not out to get you...

There wouldn’t be scabs if the union did its job.

Oh yes there would be. Years ago our branch fought to get a scab a full-time position that he was denied. The NALC took it all the way to arbitration and won. The scab got his full-time position and back pay. A few years later he got a LOW and the union got it removed.

His wife won't let him because she doesn't want any money going to the union. He told the steward he would join if we could waive the dues. Wow!

She controls the booty. I can’t blame him.
