Would somebody please tell me about situations where somebody can be a member of a union and derive ANY net benefit from it (after paying dues, etc.) when you work at a company that is not itself unionized?

Easy. When a union contract is signed in an industry, non-union wages frequently start to aproximate it. The non-union companies need to attract workers, and they often figure that, by matching union working conditions, they can keep the union out themselves.
