Question about Unions

2270 Views 29 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  suzanimalbil
My husband has put in his job application to work for TVA in Tn. He is in contact with a boss at TVA and he tells him that it is pretty much a sure thing that he will get the job but because of it being a union job they take there time about hirring. This boss called just last week to make sure that he was still interested and said probally just a couple of more weeks. I know nothing about how unions work so I thought someone here might know about how a union works, the positives and negatives of being in a union. I know the pay is better but thats all I know.

Pro and Con

For the most part I am pro union. I was raised in a union home and as a is not an least in my opinion. A union should ensure that the working conditions are good, pay is fair, insurance good and to protect your rights in case of a dispute. In a school environment there sure seems to be a lot of politics. If it wasn't for the unions I am sure the turn over would be great due to administration's personal favorites. Some union are better than others, if the workers are in a union..he needs to join or he will treated as a "scab". Not good, union people stand together and believe if you have the pay and their protection you should be a member.
Hope this helps.
