    Comparing unions (local 787 vs local 52)

    Hi Folks,

    I'm wondering if anyone here is in either one of the unions mentioned above or know enough about the two to share how they compare? and/or how either one of them has been treating them?

    Much appreciated

    not too many people from Ontario here, personally I haven't worked under either, so I have no valued input here.

    I'm a member of 787 and I have a fantastic benefits package, decent pension plan and a very good wage package. I had some trouble with a wsib claim where I was on wsib and the company laid me off and then eventually terminated my employment. The union paid for all the lawyers to help me out, there was no way I could have afforded that. I really have nothing negative to say about them. We also have a fantastic training center, all our apprentices go through Union school and we have regular upgrading courses offered to any member.
