    Come on guys, give the new guy a chance
    Let's have this discussion again. My opinion go non union, but what do I know, unions are far and few here in Florida.

    It sounds to me like the newbie is a union troll. He seems to have already made up his mind with his statement that he can work half a year union and make as much as he can merit shop...and the health insurance blurb just makes me feel like we are being set up for a bunch of union rhetoric.

    If in my area I could make twice the money and it was the only way to receive bennies, I certainly wouldn't go on the Internet to ask people which way to go. I would not want others to think I was that dumb.

    Some of the brightest techs I have met have been union. Some of the brightest techs I have met have been non union. I have been on both sides of the fence and am now non union. As with anything else in life , it is what YOU make of it !! As a rookie to the feild , you already have the wrong attitude. You said that you want to only work 1/2 the year and make a full years salary. That is idiotic to think that way as well as LAZY !!!

    I am a UA member, and I am the best trained and most qualified technician that you will find on this site, you really only to make one observation when you are choosing union over non-union,

    There are a lot more people trying to get in the union that out of it.

    Some people on here that are crying about unions, and claimong they do better without them, are full of baloney.

    Yes there are few people outside of the union that do better than the average union employee but they are few and far between,and fewer and farther between have decent benefits to go along with that slightly better dollar. The brutal reality is that most journeyman union technicians get payed over scale anyway, you won't hear the non union guys talk about that, because they don't believe in comparing apples to apples,

    I will assure you that I am union and that there is nobody or at least no other technician on this site that does better than I do, when wage and benefits are considered as a package, most of them won't even be in the same ballpark.

    It's not even a choice just go union, you will never regret it.
