Re: Union Tapers. Pros and Cons?


I was in the Painters and Allied Trades union for about ten years. It was good to have benefits. Health insurance and pension. I was in the Denver union, but working in the mountains. In the last twenty years or so, the unions are all but dead here. So to remain, I have worked non union since then. At the time, mountain non union scale was as high, if not higher, than Denver union scale. But since then, and more recently, the mountains are pretty much over run by illegal help, who tend to knock the non union wages down. Union scale will remain good regardless of competition.
