    A question for papermaker

    Yea politics and money always have a way of making something easy fucked up. One way to think about it is Boeing a huge corporate company if they weren't getting a return on thier money the union would be gone in a heart beat they don't care about protests or news backlash. Thier always has to be a balance the auto unions got to big and had to much power and look at Detroit most of the cars and parts are made over seas now because it wasn't profitable for them to make it with how out of hand the union costs got and thousands are out of Jobs and moved away leaving the city and surround areas in shambles. Then you read about horrible work conditions at Tesla and people wanting to unionize because of it.

    With OSHA and everyone being lawsuit happy safety is the largest part of a job now. You can get thrown off for the dumbest safety violation like taking your safety glasses off when you go take a **** and forgetting to put them back on before u walk out the port a potty

    Boeing can always bring in non union employees during a strike, a company around here did that during a strike but settled after a 2 weeks when thier production went way down compared to the people that do the task every day.

    I edited my post I don't know if you seen this part Most jobs are a year to up to 10 year projects so you will know months in advance when the lay off is gonna be. The smaller week to month jobs are usually for the apprentices that are lower skill and on a easy peace of equipment like a dirt roller and end dump. I have been on the same job for 2 years now and the only layoffs were from dec. The Friday before Christmas till Jan 2nd the company take a holiday break but I have been with this company for 5 years and usually the next job is lined up or we have multiple jobs going at one time so if your good and mesh well with everyone u won't get laid off just sent to the next job.

    Not really but a work day is 7-3:30 you can tell them if you can't work weekend or nights night work is a higher pay weekends are overtime so your on a set schedule and if a job is over night you'll know before hand not just sprung on you one day. The union does have a supplemental program they will give you some money to offset the difference but it's not = to 2 days work. Most jobs are a year to up to 10 year projects so you will know months in advance when the lay off is gonna be.

    You can if you want it's up to you when you put your name back on the list you could wait a week a month when ever u want. When I first got in thier was days I was laid off called on my way home and was back out to work for another company the next day.

    A question for papermaker

    I think your thinking of unions in the wrong way labor unions are like hiring halls say you own a construction company and you have anywhere from 5-20 jobs you can't afford to pay people all year round if you don't have work and if u keep hiring and laying people off no one is gonna work for you. If your union and you need 20 guys you can call up and request 20 guys if you need 50 just call up and say I need 50 when the Jobs up you can lay them off and they just put thier name back on a hiring list till the next company calls. A union with in a company is different they represent only the workers for that company and some times just demand to much for positions that are not skilled enough to warrant the pay. Some times companies give in to try and have a leg up at negotiating on the next deal on problem or they hold thier ground and people strike and it's usually about who can hold out longer the workers of company.

    They might just be specialist one one type of machine making the same part everyday and that's whats needed from them compared to a Machinist that's trained on multiple pieces of equipment and can make anything. Being union doesn't mean your making more then other people doing the same job it's thier to make sure your not being taken advantage of and working for a fare wage.

    A question for papermaker

    Every unions different I don't know with Boeing if the union was just for Boeing employees or just a Machinist union. Like my union is only heavy equipment operators that's contractors hire as they need but my buddy works for that state government and thier union covers anybody from office workers to mechanics to laborers and is way different then mine. With us thier is no minimums I was working for a small company that was union they mainly did residential jobs but would bid on larger commercial jobs anything residential they we're allowed to use thier employees but anything commercial had to be union. I was the only operator working for them at the time but when anything commercial Came up they would call and request anywhere from 1 to 20 or how ever many people they needed. Actually the owner had it set up as 2 different companys the commercial one was union the residential was non now that I think about it. For me it was good and bad if residential was slow I would work for his commerical company as a forman but I couldn't run equipment because I wasn't union at the time even though he owned the equipment.

    My buddy does heating and air conditioning for a non union company but on some of the larger jobs they are dual contracted and he ends up working with a company that's union. He makes a killing when that happens because he gets union rate plus what ever the benefits package is paid into his check so he ends up making way more hourly then the union guys. He tells me all the time about days were he just hands them 50 bucks and says just go to lunch and come back at 3 to sign out because they just don't know **** and are in the way. With us that can't really happen with thier being so many different pieces of heavy equipment you have to either get certified to run a piece or if you put on your work card that you can run a piece of equipment and you get sent out on it. If the company calls the union and says you **** send some one else after 3 call backs your out.

    It was a small family run company that did in ground pool instillation , land scaping , and fencing. Small company's like that it doesn't make sense to have union employees. We're union helps out is large company's that need slot of skilled employees not smaller company's that have 50 employees or less.
