Is TSG the only hourly paid department that's not union? I'm kind of confused why we don't fall under the union umbrella since we're not supervisors, specialist, managers, etc ... Just full time hourly employees.

TSG stands for Technology Support Group. They're the ones that maintain all the computers and technology related items.

There was a thread about this earlier. I think because its such a skilled job, and not everyone is created equal in that field.

You are classified as a non union admistrative employee. Such as HR, Business Development, IE, PE and Automtive.

Most, if not all, Operations clerks are union.

Have you worked as a union employee elsewhere, or feel you need to represented by a union? Just curious

Isn't PE and Automotive represented by a union? I'm fairly certain PE is atleast. I don't view PE or Automotive any differently than TSG, except those guys are covered by the union.

I've never been in a union, but given the current state of TSG, yes I think we could use a union. We're loosing people and positions like crazy because of the insane management practices.

The automotive and PE mechanics are union. The office clerks are non union.

It's too bad tsg didn't unionize back in the early 2000's when it was a stronger department, but the companies attitude towards TSG was different back then. Now, were using 3rd party technicians to go out to our external customers and to go out to ups facilities and perform installs and repairs. Tsg's responsibilities are being taken away little by little. Tsg was told we wouldn't be loosing our jobs, but techs are being told to find other jobs within the company, move to other cities to hubs that have a vacancy or are offered a severance. Looks like the hand writing is on the wall. I don't know if joining a union would help us at this point.

Sucks to hear that. Years ago when I was stuck in part-time supervisor purgatory I started taking programming classes with the intention to get into TSG. A friend of mine in the department advised against that, and said the department was downsizing, not hiring. Luckily I got the chance to go driving shortly thereafter. Hopefully some of my old friends in that department don’t lose their jobs.
