Your job is not protected because you are in a union. Being in a union gives you certain things.GCMan said:The pro to being unionized is professionalism, and the con is that it is job protectionism.

So what are we doing in construction, missing out on all the opportunities to be had in Engineering, Science and Medicine? Oh, ...we have to work for a living.
We hate that.
Yeah, there's one guy to hold the nail while the other guy hits it!RJS said:I asked a union carpenter once about the type of nail guns he uses, he responded by saying, "We don't use them". I was amazed and asked why? He said, "Because it takes a job away from someone else". I guess this is job security at its finest.
