here are men that will always be first to the bench, union lawyers, lazy bums and trouble makers. then there are guys that only want short calls with OT.I
If you're a good worker the company will want to take you with them to the next job instead of taking their chances with someone new from the hall. This goes against what some union members think the union is about, but ultimately you joined the union for yourself.
We have some out of town work and we have gotten the some excellent hard working IBEW members. Always a worry, always a crap shoot but I guess we have been lucky.What a wonderful little fairy tale world that is. I can imagine one of my crew stepping aside to let the next guy on the list come to work. I would close the doors and shut it down......I would be driven to the brink of insanity by the lazy slobs who are next on the list and just when that guy got his time in.....the next one would probably be worse.:no:
