Being a union member is a bit like having insurance for your job. It’s like health insurance - you take it out just in case. It’s always good to have that support network to fall back on and know that the people involved with the union will go into bat for you – they won’t hold back they’ll do everything they possibly can for you. That’s why I joined the union in the first place. Being tax deductible and all the Member benefits – it was a no brainer for me. Tom
