VersatileRN 40 Posts Jan 10, 2017 I've been a union RN and a Non union RN for 15 years. I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. I've worked under union most of my 15 years. Crap conditions, poor staffing, not enough money. They had their chance with me. I'm proudly transferring over to travel/scab nursing. The union has never met my expectations and the pay could be a lot better under the crap union working conditions. They never came through for me. I've waited far too long. So now all i care about is cold cash money. Can't wait to start traveling and crossing the picket lines for tons of money. I no longer call myself an RN. I'm officially a businessman / contractor. Next week I'll start my first contract bringing home double the $ my crappy union job provided me.
