I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I had 10 years of service when I was laidoff, which gave me the opportunity to go back to school through the TAA program and still get my subpay. So it was the best case situation for me in a bad situation.

Cons

I was laidoff before others that had less seniority than myself. There were 10 of us in this situation. I am the only one left that did not take a severance or transfer to a new plant. It's not right but the union does what ever it wants to if it pleases them.

Advice to Management

I have no words...in fact my issue wasn't with management. I did my job and I did it well. The union is my issue...I know that they help me in many situations but in this one it was a decision that the union made so they could retain others (one the shop chairs nephew) so others were laid off. I still pay union dues 3 years later and they won't even return a phone call from me. I've called 3 times in 3 years. So glad I went and got my bachelors on them.
