    Advice to Management

    Vital that the organization as a whole do a better job of communicating, especially with younger members and potential members. Must do better job of understanding Gen Y and younger demographic and utilizing social media, etc. or ground will continue to be lost, especially in "right to work" states.

    Pros

    You can make really good money, has great benefits, and has a pension set up for you. Also have the union to back you up.

    Cons

    The cons would be that the schedule is horrible, never consistent from day to day. There are also a lot of lazy people who take advantage of the Union system. Nepotism is also very popular. No vacation pay.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create vacation funds for members. Put a stop to the nepotism that happens in almost every company.
