DETROIT (WKZO) -- UAW members attending the June convention can expect to hear a request for the approval of an increase in dues.  If approved, it would be the first time since 1967 that the union would raise the percentage of income each worker pays.

The goal, according to UAW President Bob King, is to replenish the union's strike fund. The money would also go toward continuing an organized push at unionizing plants in the south.
