Union VS. Non-Union

Union vs Non-Union in the trucking industry is the question? For the past two years I’ve been a non-union commercial driver and starting tomorrow I’ll be a Union truck driver being represented by the (Local 1964 International Longshoremen Association). This is a new experience for me, but I can tell you some benefits that are already in effect; are the sign on bonus, compensation, pension, medical and dental insurance, and fixed start times. I also know that if work gets slow I will still get my 40 hours no matter what. My employment is protected. 🚛

This reminds me of the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki when he states that if you’re going to work a regular job make sure it’s Union because it’s protected. New technology can get introduced into an industry and decimate thousands of jobs that are not protected by the Union. Although my plans are to transition into Real Estate in 2024, it’s a good feeling to know my employment is protected for the rest of my life. ✅

What are your thoughts on this video and Union vs. Non-Union commercial drivers? 🤔

New Job Offer

I’m excited to announce that I’ve accepted job offer with Maersk! Although I’m happy with my current employer, I couldn’t pass up a job offer from a company that is Union. 🚛 Aside from UPS, there aren’t many truck drivers that are Union. I’ll still be hauling out of the ports so nothing is really changing from me far as the type of work I’ll be doing. They did run a background check on me, but they only went back 7 years. So if you have a felony conviction, anything after 7 years you are golden.

(About Maersk)

Maersk's business activities include shipping, port operation, supply chain management and warehousing. The company is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with subsidiaries and offices across 130 countries and over 100,000 employees worldwide in 2022. Maersk generated around 86 billion in revenue in 2022.

I get it, work is work and when you need to get paid, you do the job, but I'm not sure I would want to work as a scab. A scab is someone who works for a company while its usual workers are out on strike. Saw this article about recruiting scabs and wondering if YOU'D WORK AS A SCAB? #shareyourthoughts in the comments.
