Because we agree with the Board that Local 99 did not give Robert Carroll adequate notice of the consequences of his failure to remit his union dues before it took steps that resulted in his discharge from employment, we deny the petition for review and grant the Board's cross-application for enforcement.</p></div> <div class="numbered-paragraph"><p> I.

In 1991, Mr. Carroll failed to make his first two quarterly payments.

The letter thus warned Mr. Carroll that on June 30, 1991, he would face expulsion from the union should he fail to remit payment by that date; it neglected to warn him, however, that a failure to meet the deadline would also result in his discharge from EMC.
