I am trying to make a decision of going union or non-union. Can someone tell me if my knowledge of a union is accurate in the sentences below? (I know there is more to a union than this but this is just my general idea of a electrical union)
* Union employees work on larger projects.
* Union employees have a higher salary and better benefits.
* Union employees have hard workers and hard slackers who get paid the same amount.
* Union employees don’t have a set schedule.
* Union employees may only work half of the year, or can may work at one place for 3 yrs.
* After a project is complete your name goes on the bottom of the list for the next project.
* Union employees have to pay a fee to remain in the union even if unemployed on the waiting list.

Freddie,

As this, historically, can be a volitile topic I'm going to close this and ask that anyone wishing to respond do so by sending you a personal message.
