>To Diane, and any others who belong to TW unions, what benefits does your
union bring to you?
Washtech is a technical workers union that protects our rights as workers in
the state of Washington. We have a couple of small companies in our state
(Boeing and Microsoft) that practically own our state legislature. For
example, a few years ago Microsoft pushed through a law that says high-tech
workers cannot ask for time and a half for overtime. A recent proposed
change in the unemployment law would require a laid-off consultant to
continue to contact their former agency, even if the agency made no promise
of work in the future (this has to do with Microsoft's one-year limit on
Washtech lobbies for us, keeps us abreast of the latest workplace news, and
provides discounts on training in high-tech fields. It only costs $11 a
month...well worth the cost.
