I'm a union tech in the west.'
We get 1/2 hour lunch deducted regardless if we take it or not.
Hussmann does have a different deal here also. The Tradesmen and Apps, make less ,and I also here that Hussmann techs do not get vacation or matching hours paid into the kitty for ANY travel time EXCEPT on call.
They (Hussmann) have got clout with the union...or they used to.(70-80 less techs)
I believe this September is a turning point.
Safeway contracts , Union labor contracts all to be renewed at the peak of summer....should be REAL interesting.
I hope to still be sporting same pinstriped uniforms in October.
