    Pros

    UCONN is a union shop. Difficult to meet the 90 day probation period but if you do you are in for life.

    Cons

    Because it is a union shop there are many employees that are there that shouldn't be. Difficult to terminate substandard employees in a union shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wouldn't help.
