    I have union reps come on my jobs all the time and try to get me to go to work for them.For the first time though a union rep came to me today and asked me if I wanted to go to work for them for cash.Is this a typical practice? I know If I was a union guy and was out of work they would frown upon me going to another non union company.

    I was in a union and they were the reason I was laid off from a job. Do not trust them.

    My bro in law has a pretty big non union electrical biz...he tells me the greatest stories about NYC. He has to bring in a certain percent of union guys to work in certain areas...stuff like that

    One time he had to move a line for a cell company across the street...like a major st...broadway or 5th ave or something

    anyway he goes there and there is a huge union job going on there...No way he can work without getting the union guys on board. They'd kick his ass, destroy his trucks...etc

    So he goes to the head electrical guy and says how much to move the line? The guy replies, "well you have to talk to the reps..blah, blah"

    My BIL says no..."How much cash for YOU to move the line?"

    The guys says "3K.....it'll be done by morning"

    Everyone is a whore...lol

    Pros/cons to everything. I'm not one if these organizing types but I do feel the unions have their place.

    Also know a chick that was a concrete finisher..Best finisher I ever saw..She went union and within a month had her running a crew at a power plant..Apparently some dudes had some probs working under a woman.The union fired her and put on her termination papers it was because she was a woman

    She didnt have to finish concrete anymore after that :jj:
