Bill, that statement makes no sense. Given that you didn't join a union, and you most likely don't even know WHAT the union rules (not laws or "laws", rules) are, how do you know that you couldn't have done what you did do? I don't know of any writers union, guild, or trade group that has hard, specific, and ENFORCEABLE rules regarding how to do the job.

Unions and their "rules" vary depending on the actual industry. Have you any direct experience as a union member?
