    The amount of derp is astounding.

    Like paid vacation? Like 5 day work weeks? Like overtime? Like the 8 hour workday? The list goes on.

    We can thank unions for that.

    We can thank laws for part of that. Vacation pay? I've had vacation pay in every job I've had, and I've only had one union job in my life.

    Again we can recognize the good things unions have done in the past without saying they are still necessary or even good today. And of course every union is different. The union I belonged to had an office in D fucking C for some reason that they were paying a fortune on with my union dues. Why the hell do we need an office thousands of miles away from where I worked?

    Some things we agree on, some we don't. Is every union a champion of the worker? No, some have been corrupted. Are they still needed? I think so. In our "let the buyer beware" society you bet your ass we should remain vigilant about our rights.

    I haven't had a paid vacation in 14 years. Maybe I should unionize!

    I checked my non union pay stub today. I have over 400 hours of sick leave, 600 hours of vacation. If I walked out the door right now company would owe me over 50G in payout. This is after I had heart surgery last year.

    Meant to add, but I have a boss. You don’t, so there are pros and cons.

    Let's gather 'round while ol' Tgo01 tells you a story about a coworker he had at his union job.

    We were required to take 8 calls an hour, they wanted 10+ calls an hour but 8 was the minimum. Tgo01 being the good employee that he is took 12+ calls an hour.

    Well this special coworker took 2 or 3 calls a day. Yes, 2 or 3 calls A DAY when 8 AN HOUR was the minimum. Could she be fired? Nope, too much seniority. When it came time for our office to be shut down did they let her go first to see if that could save some money to keep the office opened? Nope. They offered her a buyout, giving her 2 years salary, and with these 2 years added on to her time at the company she had enough years to retire with full benefits.

    What happened to Tgo01, the model employee? He was laid off with a month's worth of compensation.

    Yeah, I can't possibly imagine why companies hate unions.

    And I don't begrudge the lady, she was one of the nicest people I have ever known, but there were some real pieces of shit at that place too who were complete dicks and also skated by because of the union. The worst offenders were the shop stewards because management kissed their ass as much as possible and the shop stewards managed to "lose" complaints lodged against management.

    If you are a bad employee that doesn't give a shit... you need to be in a union.

    I'm not in a union and I get all that with my job. Just got bumped up to 3 weeks vacation per year too.

    Weird. How can this be with no union?
