Just should be happy to have a job as the hall says.
    If New Jersey followed the way Philly UA works this state would be much better off but like you said the UA states your lucky to be working so be happy.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    Yea why is that most technical piece of the trade which most people don't even understand how it works but the first to blame so its gotta be controls.

    Upstate NY Local 7 guy here. I work for A-rate + up here, (we don't have a B). I went down to NYC to help out for a couple weeks last year. I was surprised to find out that I was working for B-rate, and making just barely more than Upstate.

    Cant say I have ever seen a company advertise union on the side of a truck. I have a sticker on my window but I like the lettering idea.. I'm surprised to see UA322 on the top of that list...
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?
