In these day and times, union work is off and on. I am relatively new to the union since moving here in 2007. I've seen folks getting and keeping jobs due to simply having friendships....others because of good work ethic. I'm sure you're going to see the reality of hiring for people willing to take less or sacrifice/breaking union rule and law. It is what it is today, people surviving. I start back to work tomorrow a month later, but it's very limited...a few weeks at best. Some people, including "wet backs" are doing what they have to do. True union leadership would change things, but we don't have it and its unlikely that we ever will. Remember they're not rocking the boat either to keep their jobs likely so. Best of luck to finding work, the economy still sucks and will stay this way in my opinion for some time to come. Where I came from in Tidewater, VA/Hampton roads the economy is no better...my former boss from there told me it's the worst he has ever seen and he started in the 1960's, his son running the business now has sold his shop and runs it out of his home. This is an area typically busy and still is, but the influx of folks from the south and everywhere are just taking what is available for work/profit for a legitimate company. This is everywhere probably with few exceptions. I don't have the answer, the stress of it all and the ex-wife taking me back to raise child support when I'm unemployed or about to be unemployed again is mentally crippling at times. Hang in there everyone and try to keep your minds focused on positive if possible.

Greg Christianson in Oak Hills, California said: I have been a union member over 20 years!I have been looking for work for the past month! 10 months ago I got laid off my job I worked for them over 12 years! Then nine months later got a job for a month and got laid off from there! I have not been able to find any work out here, It seems all the jobs I go to say they have there own crews. They have over 3,000 people on the out of work list!!!!!!! Does anyone know where the work is in California or anywhere else?

Your lucky to have worked for anyone for 12 years... The Union is in the Crapper. The Contractors run the Union now. Give thanks to Doug and his cronies in Washington and across the country that enjoy mega pay and Bennies off folks like us ( Rank and File)our dues, while we go of the cliff. I call my benifits office now and they ask me to press 2 for Spanish! WTF!

A lot of prerequisates for working in Canada. FBI report and passport. Also, additional Union scaffold training and testing. The local training center called me last week and they are looking for members to get this extra training. The rep from the school told me the Union needs to train 1500 members to go to Canada in the next 90 days. Look in to it and get started if you even think it may be for you.

Dale in Trenton, Michigan said: I'm a union journeyman carpenter in Michigan where 'any' woodworking jobs are non-existant and our local 687 commercial contractors out-of-work list is seemingly endless and cannot help find us any jobs but, still want our dues paid to keep thier paycheck coming in! I'm pro-union and do not want to become a scab but, the union is not helping it's members and my un-enjoyment bennies are close to coming to an end. If anyone has any knowledge of work and needs a highly skilled craftsman, please reply. I have over 25yrs exp in fabricating displays, custom exibits, high end museum structures,fixtures and interactive exhibits, finish work both commercial and residential, cabinets, custom mouldings and milling, Zoo exhibits and U.S. Fish & Wildlife visitor centers fabrication and installation . Country wide job site travel season'd veteran. Relocating is no problem when it comes to survival. Any help from anyone tuning in to this message would be great!

Hey DEE this is your fault. You should have paid your dues. PERIOD. You didn't live up to your responsibilties. I notice that you are about 2hrs away from Whiting, In. I just got off the BP job there. There were thousands of carpenters on that job for 7yrs. They needed so many they had them from all over the country. If you couldn't be bothered to travel to make $35.49/hr. that's on you.

JW Construction & Design in Naperville, Illinois

Lots of work more than I can handle. I don't even want to answer the phone anymore because if I do I have to schedule an appointment to look at a new project and I don't even know when I will have time for that. The problems are this....finding good craftsmanship. People talk a lot, say the can do this and that. But when it comes down to the fine details of their work, it sucks and then they expect to get paid for their crappy work. I don't care if your union or not. I care if your a hard dedicated worker, one who respects the work that they do. One who knows they do good work. One who knows they stand above the rest in their line of work, but also knows there is always someone better and respects that person for their great work as well. I run a residential remodeling company out of Naperville IL. I am looking for all trades men in residential remodeling. The ones that stand above the others. You know who you are and you know if your not. look at our work at JW Construction and Design.
