I saw something today I wasn't supposed to see
Edited on Tue May-24-11 01:20 AM by iwillalwayswonderwhy
I work for a company that has multiple warehouses spread across the country. We just got brand spanking new insurance benefits this year.
Today, I got an email from the corporate office that contained a spreadsheet that would show the new codes that will be on the paychecks.
But I'm a curious sort. The company has (much to their chagrin), 3 warehouses that are unionized. So when I saw the tab that said Unions, heck yeah, I opened it. Insurance benefits for the union employees will cost those employees 1/3 of what I have to pay for the very same insurance. The company itself pays a bigger piece of their insurance than for the rest of it.
I don't begrudge the union employees in the slightest. But I could plainly see in an instant, why corporations despise unions. I also saw in an instant, why unions are so valuable to workers.
I quietly closed the spreadsheet and pondered on this a while.
I'm still pondering.
Edited to make this a little more vague.

2. I see your point but it is never a good idea to talk about what you did at your job on the Internet.
There has been at least one incident here where someone talked about something job-related and it got back to their employer. There are people who actively seek to disrupt the lives of people on DU. I would recommend alerting on your own thread and asking for it to be deleted.
Naaaaaaaaaaaaa people would never do that....:DLets just paint some happy clouds over at the sunshine and lollipop land

I'm surprised the union hasn't tried to unionize the rest of the warehouses.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Health care has to be paid for by somebody. Pretending that it's free just guarantees higher costs as everyone consumes the services without having to worry about the price, until the person stuck with the bill runs out of money, which is what is happening now.

we're a union state because everyone's daddy was a union member. This state has been royally FUCKED by the unions, both private and State.
It really doesn't surprise me that they pay less than the other employees
