I have some questions regarding the labor rules in Colorado. My son is sixteen and was hired by (grocery store). He started in August and was employed about 20 miles away and hoping to get transfered to the store a few minutes away from our house. He did but has worked a total of 16 hours. He has since decided to concentrate on school and quit. Now a letter arrived from UFCW Local 7, demanding union dues and other fees in the amount of 217.00. To my knowledge he never signed union papers at his first location but did sign at the second. Now that the background is done below are my questions.

Can he sign the union papers without parent consent, since he is a minor?

If he did not fill out the paperwork at the first store, only at the second, can they charge him dues going all the way back to August at the first store?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
