I belonged to the ATU as a transit worker for 25 years prior to retiring and returning to college to become an RN. The ATU gave us tangible benefits, negotiated good contracts for us, managed our pension fund in a manner which actually led to it being overfunded, and did not continually harangue us with political materials at election time. All of this for 21.80 per month versus 60.00 a month for no representation and political harassment from the SEIU. The RNs at our facility are becoming more incensed with take "pay up and shut up" attitude of the SEIU, and are beginning to speak more and more of decertifying the union. I don't know that going non-union is a great idea, but I would tell RNs that are thinking of unionizing to consider their representation carefully.
