I'm no expert on this subject but have delt with my own union in this regard so I'll try to help out here. In short, the answer is you are dropped from the membership rolls. The ammount of quarters you're allowed to fall behind in dues largely depends on your unions "Constitution". For mine it would be the close of the fourth quarter in arrears before I would be dropped from the rolls. Call your union on this one for more specific information, according to your unions Constitution, any agreements and supplements to that agreement.

What do union members get in return for their union dues. Are any dues used toward retirement and other benefits?

Members get membership rights - they can vote for union officials, run for union office, attend meetings, vote on contract ratification. FOlks in a bargaining unit who pay no dues (free riders) don't get any of that. Everyone in the unit gets represented during contract negotiation, and grievances. Dues also pay for union lobbying and political contributions. Almost no unions use dues to fund retirement, that has become an employer-paid benefit. Dues and assessments are amassed for a strike fund.

Yes - if a minor works for a company that is unionized (as are many grocery stores) they are required to pay union dues whether they join the union or not. Note: these are fixed amounts, not % of pay. When a minor, or anyone, works at one of these companies part-time and for minimum wage their salaries can be reduced by >20% from these dues. If you think I'm wrong, have your child work at a Kroger grocery store.
