IT Unionized...yeah right
I can't see a union working properly in the IT field. There are far too many downsides to a union and they don't fit intelligently into the IT field. For instance pay is based on seniority versus knowledge/ability. There is nothing wrong with a Union for some lines of work, but I don't think to many system admins would agree they should be paid based on seniority. The other problem is the cost that Unions add to labor. IT workers are paid very fairly and typically the more demanding the job the better the pay. An individual worker needs to decide what is best for themselves. A union ideal of one size fits all doesn't work in IT as any hiring manager can attest to that has tried to hire talent. Not all candidates are created equal. I love having the ability to walk out and find another gig if my current one is not meeting MY needs. I also really like being paid based on my skills and not my time on the job. Otherwise I would never have been able to make the kind of money I did at such a young age. I have to agree with Patrick Gray I don't think Unions are a fit for IT.
