How many union electricians does it take to change a light bulb?

13.... you got a problem with dat?

I was a member of the IBEW years ago. They took my money for their dues, and did everything they could to ensure that the lazy, incompetent members who had seniority over me would ALWAYS have seniority over me. I do not miss them at all.

I was also a site manager for the construction of a facility in New Jersey. We had to use union labor. Electricians, carpenters, fitters, riggers the works. Each of these trades had a main goal: milk the job for as long as they could. At least 50% of my time was spent on daily battles with the unions over slow progress, poor work, turf battles between trades, the list goes on.

There was once a time for the unions, but they have devolved into incestuous organizations concerned mainly with their own survival.
Life is short. Enjoy it while you can
