Yawn.. My first job was in a grocery store bagging groceries, I was 16. Starting pay for this chain of stores was set at Minimum Wage +$.75/hr, with a standard $.25/hr raise for every year. There was a cap on the raises based on your position, for instance a bagger would cap out at $14/hr. This was quite a few decades ago. There was NO Union.
I worked there for about 4 years while I was in High School and the year after graduation that I spent completing flight training before going to college, and with hard work I had increased my pay by several dollars per hour by getting promoted to Assistant Front end manager. Needless to say I was making VERY good money for a High School Student. I only left when I went to college out of state. I decided to work at a grocery store in the new State while in college as it offered quite a bit of flexibility with hours, this time I was in a Union State. I took a $2/hr pay CUT and had to pay DUES!!!
Don't feed me this BS that Unions are so wonderful... There was a time and place for the Union, it has passed, now they are nothing more than another tax collector that exists for the SOLE purpose of collecting dues. They are just another Corporation in disguise.
Obviously your local was satisfied with the wages and working conditions, it was probably in a small non union city. Too bad your local didn't have the balls to step up for what you felst was right. That is not a union it's a fraterinity of a small town of friends.

You got sold on it, good for you. You may pay all the dues that want to, and use union rep any time you make a mistake, but I do not need them to fulfill any contractual obligations between my company and consignees. I haven't had to use my card, but a handful of times, and I wish you to explain, in detail, why are the unions "necessary" in todays America ?

Hudson, I work when and where I want, I can earn as much or as little as I want, I don't pay for my medical benefits, I pay only $1 for my perscriptions and will get more from my pension than more people make in a years salary. This is why I support a good labor union like the ILWU. Yes I am sold, you get what you pay for. I won't bore you with my fantastic lifestyle. "Live better work UNION"

Bruno.

Longshoremen of your generation were able to bargain for better benefits in exchange for ILWU permitting the employers to modernize work methods and rules in order to increase productivity. The revolutionaries who came out of the 60s 70s (now in power) seemingly have forgotten the elementary truth that increased wages and improved conditions of employment can only be achieved as a result of increased productivity. Witness to this fundamental economic truth is the observation that:

"over the course of 40 years (19692009), the median earnings of American men with college degrees fell by 12% in constant (inflation-adjusted) dollars. For men with only a high-school diploma, earnings fell a staggering 47%."

In order to quiet the masses, post revolution Government is now doling out food stamps that are paid for by the increasingly impoverished, diminishing minority of Americans who are still paying taxes - most of whom are NON-tobacco smokers. Essentially, the "benefits" Government doles out to the non-taxpaying majority represents the eating up of capital - a necessary component for the production of goods and services. What is the American working ("middle") class going to do after all the seed corn is eaten?
