Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

Utah is a "right to work" state, which means an employee has no obligation to join a union or pay union dues. Accordingly, the union's recourse if the employee doesn't want to pay union dues is to throw the employee out of the union. It cannot force the employee to pay dues.

Does that answer your question(s)? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
