wow... sorry you feel that way. my union (laborers 393) is all about voluteer work. most all our members give up a handful of volunteer days throughout the year. sure glad i live here in northern IL i guess. this year was a lot slower than normal, but i still made a pretty good dollar. as far as unions go... its just like anything else... dont let a few rotten apples spoil the whole bushel.Dee said:Sounds pretty typical to me. I think for the most part unions like the UAW, and a few others have become corrupt, and have outlived their purpose.
