Remember that union competes against non union for market share of work out there a larger union is a stronger union which can provide even better benefits.
Do not share any books or manuals that were developed by the UA for the UA without permission from the UA first.
Joe K is right. Even though we've gotten in the habit of helping each other out, we need to remember that union and non-union contractors are in direct competition with each other.
Don't share UA study materials with non-UA members.

Yes I do. We all get a quarterly newsletter and the right to go down in person to review the financial records.

Why all the hard feelings? UA study materials were developed at the cost of the UA for the benefit of UA members. Joe was simply stating that fact. Why does that upset you?
