My introduction to unions was not a pleasant experience.
Shortly after beginning a 2-year consulting contract with
the client I found myself one day in the lab just getting
ready to pick up a microscope and carry it across the
aisle. "NO!" someone shouted. I had to wait TWO hours
to get a union guy with the right classification to come
do that. This in an industry that was being ravaged by
Japanese competition! This can't be all that common, I
told myself. Sadly, it was the rule. When I later saw the
union folks on TV bemoaning the closure of the facility they
were blaming everyone except watashi.
