    Source and non-Union Hussmann (here in the SW) works 50-60 Hr Wks, 70-80 Hr Wks when on-call stand-by. They can keep those Hrs, I'd rather do a Union 40 Hr Wk at $5 more an Hr!

    It depends on what Local. "HVACR" only, I think there's only one in No. America. "Pipefitter Locals" are more HVACR friendly than "Plumbing & Pipefitting Locals". This is from my experience.
