If I signed a contract with a union to pay legal fees, am I obligated to pay all fees if I quit the job and union?

Question Details: I signed a contract with a lawyer as part of a union to agree to pay legal fees during a contract negotiation. I left the job and union, and paid all fees that accrued up to the date of my departure. They are trying to have me pay the remaining fees for services that were provided to the union after my quit date. Am I legally responsible to pay these fees even though I was no longer an employee and part of the union?
