From Las Vegas — 02/21/2008

If you are office staff you will likely need a union to represent you. Your work will be 9-5 stuff. If you are a business agent or orgainnzer it is butt kissing time! To come out of the rankd into the level of administration of your local union it is necessary to be prepared to do everything to kiss the Sec-Treas. ass. You will contribute to a reelection campaign fund, every month, to help with the election expenses.
You are at the whim of the elected officer. The benefits are good and the pay OK but the number one purpose for a union , any union local, is to reelect the chief operating officer. Members? They just pay dues, anything else is secondary to getting reelected.

They will not negoptiate a good cntract for the members, just enough to keep themselves in the money and benefits. In all 3 locals here in Las Vegas that is the attitude. Forget about solidarity, its just another business and you will be paying the dues money for nothing!
