Do you ever regret your union dues?

Recommended Posts

Do you ever regret your union dues… I know I see them deducted from my pay, and I always wonder why….BUT NOT TODAY!


I am so excited I had to share with someone!!!

Our Union, after almost 2 years of deliberation finally agreed to a tentative agreement for us. And…drum-roll please…we get almost a 4000$ increase! And about that much in back pay as well, give or take taxes of course, since the contract expired in June of 2007!!cheer2.gifcheer2.gif


This could not have come at a better time!! We are bombarded with Credit card debt, we always manage to make at least the minimum payments, mostly double or triple payments, but this will help SO MUCH!! I get in tears whenever I think about the amount of debt we are accumulating, so now the card is in the FREEZER!


It should pay about 1/3 of our Credit Card debt!! WOOHOO!!! We want to pay it all off before we even think of getting a house! And now that is so much sooner! It feels like I can be happy about our wedding again!!! elefant.gif


Word of advice for your MasterCard holders, did you know you can call them every 6 months, even if you only make minimum payments, and ask for them to adjust your interest rate to your lowest possible rate??!! This has helped us SO much! I have saved thousands of dollars by sticking a reminder in my phone telling me to call and ask for a re-adjustment! bunny_4.gif


I am so excited!!!! …


Maybe now I will get a second dress…. smile72.gif
