Not personally. Both my parents are union members, and to advance
their careers they both had to go through endless union red tape to
get anywhere.

So let me ask this: What would a union provide that a person can't get
themselves?

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.
