1562 Dedic v. UAW Auditing Department

Case No: 1562


We agree with the International Union that if the parties had intended to exempt all future public sector units from the customary per capita rate established by the UAW, it would have been stated explicitly in the Agreement. The International Union has acknowledged that its failure to explain the per capita tax requirements for future public sector units and to enforce those requirements in the past was an error. Now that the error has been acknowledged and the UAW’s policy explained, we are hopeful that the parties can agree on satisfactory language to cover the public sector units that joined the Local after the original affiliation. The case is remanded for that purpose.
