Really T&M? That's an interesting thought...I'm sure you know all 15000 A Rated Journeyperson's in LU3.

I'm also sure you're convinced of your own experience in organizing and how to enter a union.

I'm also sure you, and the other unorganized electricians here...those that really ARE electricians I mean...are so well versed in IBEW Policies and those of LU3 NYC that your advice should be heard loud and clear over all else.

You speak of agenda...what agenda is this? Other than to give a person a chance, any chance for change and to get into one of the strongest IBEW Locals in the United States.

Oh wait, you've been around the block, you obviously know more about Telecom and Unionization than any of those here...so please...

Go on...spout your nonsensical bullsh*t...it's amusing, entertaining, and so completely [email protected] that you've brought smiles to a bunch of unionized electricians faces this Sunday morning!

You're sure of a lot of things, we should discuss the current state of Detroit Michigan and how the unions turned that city in to the worst city in America

Actually, I'm very good friends with the Training Director of Detroit Michigan and I train Instructors in Ann Arbor Michigan every year. Yes, Detroit was ravaged...not JUST by unions, that's like saying that only the icing on the cake is fattening. How about the gang warfare, how about the out and out poverty, how about the corruption of civil leaders?

Pinning the demise of a city on one faction is ridiculous.

What I DO know is that the IBEW in Detroit have, for the last 8yrs at least, been doing monumental civil work in that city. They have successfully created and maintain resources for Drug/Alcohol Counseling, Homeless and Women's Shelters, a Gang Mediation Task Force and much much more.

So tell me...what have you and your friends done to help out the horror show that Detroit had become? What have you done to increase the chances of simple survival in that city? What have you and your friends done to help anyone BUT yourselves?

Easy questions T&M...I'm waiting...

I think you are an amature hack, dabbling on the outskirts of the trade, living off of some woman with self esteem issues.

Hmm nothing more to say about Detroit T&M? Another one who throws sh*t at the wall hoping some will stick but when confronted with reality suddenly there's nothing to say.

whats the going rate for 1st year, its 12.50 right, did they just ratify another contract cause the old scale I had from dec I saw 11.50 then $2 increase every year till 5th year which I don't know what you call it now. 5th/mij was 25 I thought. so 1st=12.50,2nd=14.50,3rd=16.50,4th=18.50 is that about right. Also, do apprentices get any type of vacation time whether it be one or two weeks.
