    I couldn't argue with that but is not a union thing the other side does it too.

    I am vested and they will last as long as I pay my dues.

    I am in a somewhat rare situation though.... We have not experienced a slow down in ANY form for the last 10 years, not one day....

    All I am trying to point out is that you can't get something for nothing. Not trying to throw gas on your trash can fire...
    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    I did.... Does that make me "special"? Hated every minute I was there.... They bought the company I worked for for ten years... I did not go to them.

    Couldn't help but notice that you answered two questions with one question....

    Am I understanding correctly, you work for JCSS? Non-Union? You must be a BAS Tech then.
