    Hello,

    I'm a new hire and thought joining the union was automatic, but after looking at my pay stubs, I see that's not the case. How would one begin the process? I apologize if this is a commonly asked question.

    Thank you!

    From the day you're hired there is a 70 day countdown. My supervisor notified our trainee group that we were a permanent crew. If your supervisor doesn't mention anything they'll lay you off after the holiday craze.

    Honestly just representation. From what I can gather the Teamsters were developed to keep people from being treated poorly and being taken good care of. In my experience I wish I were part of a Union years ago.

    The (private) unions of today are nothing like they were back in the day.
