Not everyone knows that I am a daughter of a police officer. My mom is retired from the Chicago Police Department. She has a great benefit plan and pension package. That’s because of smart union negotiations. Yes, the union has done right by my family. And speaking of unions, my guest this week is Jason Greer, labor relations expert and founder of Greer Consulting Inc. He is a Gen-Xer with a slightly different take on unions. He believes in protecting the working class and that there is strength in numbers. But yet he also believes a union is the wrong way of protecting your interests. We talk about all of that and more in this week’s episode of Let’s Fix Work.
In this episode you’ll hear:
Leaders and employees, if you
take anything away from this conversation, take this: You've got to
start the conversation early about what you want and voice your
expectations. If you do so, maybe you won't need a union or even an
intermediary. What you need most is to have a voice, to be brave
and to begin the conversation.
Jason said it best when he said, “There is strength in being proactive.”
If you are interested in the state of unions in 2019 or you want to hear from an African American man who talks about civil rights and busting unions from a different perspective, then give this episode a listen.
