    Pros

    Huge ability to leverage infrastructure and the new generation employee is willing and able to take the company forward.

    The union leadership is stuck in a time long past and maintains a rather combative attitude.

    Help the union executive learn, do this by showing and by educating.

    I have been working at Canada Post part-time

    Pros

    Great pay for what you do; no complaints making close to $20/hr to move some boxes around, though new employees may start lower after the new agreement

    Being part of an union does have a lot of benefits, but be warned, starting as a casual means neither management or the union (until it comes to election time) cares about you

    Cons

    Union dues- 77/month is ok if you work full time but for those just starting, not getting a lot of hours, I've seen union dues equate to 3/4 of peoples paychecks

    Mid-level management likes to micro-manage, especially superintendents and lower level managers, though cant fully blame them because it probably comes from the top

    Work gets really repetitive and dull, so don't expect anything that will challenge your mind. Stick to doing Sudoku puzzles on break.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating workers like part of the team and not children you are babysitting
