When I was a contractor negotiating my own deals with companies, I joined the union for several reasons. They have a job hot line that takes a smaller percentage than any of the larger companies that provide TWs to clients. I also joined for additional benefits such as medical insurance. Without being part of a group, I would be unable to obtain medical insurance. That is an important benefit to me.

To Diane, and any others who belong to TW unions, what benefits does your
union bring to you? I certainly agree that unions as a whole have done many
good things over the years (as well as many not-so-good things), but what
can/does your specific union do for you as a tech writer, particularly if
you're an FTE rather than a contractor?

Not arguing pro/con unions in general or TW unions specifically -- just
truly curious.
