Union organizer not IT says no way
First of all Unions are not an organization that gets you more money, better working conditions, or more benifits. Unions are a group of united workers aiming for a socialistic approach in the workplace. In todays workplace regardless of what industry it is, a union can only accomplish higher wages and better working conditions if the union members (employees) agree to fight together in unity. Therefore those that are higher skilled, more efficient employees that are more valuable to the employer are key to the success of the union. This equation boils down to the lesser skilled, less efficient employees making equal wages with more sought after employees. Todays labor laws allow for individuals to protect themselves, not like the industrial era where there where no labor laws. It is true that the unions are largely responsible for these labor laws today, but that responsiblilty came from workers not overpaid organizers or Union officials that sell us a "right to work" line for the payment of union dues to go into their pockets and the pockets of politicians that they sleep with. If you are approached by a union you better think twice. Your money would be better spent educating yourself and increasing your effectiveness in the industry rather that giving it to some promise of the delusions of grandure that you can sit back a reap the profit. If you can be replaced easily then you should increase your skill level and the skill level of your position. It's when your employer can't replace you that your worth more to them.
