CV is a curriculum vitae, also called a resume. The thing you send to potential employers when applying for a job.

Maybe if you have time you could explain the union thing in the US to me. I am a Brit (living in Holland) and in both these countries a union is for employer protection against bad working practices and that kind of thing. In other words, they do not supply work and all employers here, regardless of whether the job you are applying for is a managing director or a janitor, want to see a CV.

Do unions operate differently in America?

I started out non union which meant when the job was done i had to go and look for another job and explain my skills and beg for descent wage which was very difficult.

So I ended up joining the union so when the job ends you just sign an out of work book and employers call you and the union sends you out at a set wage.

just to state non union i was paid $12.00 an hour as a foreman with no benefits as union $32.00 an hour with full heath and pension no this was when i made the transfer wages get a new contract every 3 years which turns into about $1.00 every year which gets cut up between paycheck and pension so last pay is $47.00 hourly

In addition all your schooling is included so all advanced training you could want

sorry this is not the best breakdown never very good at book reports in school lol

In short the union is there to be a mediator between disputes of employer and employee

hiring non union you go buy what job seeker says as far as skills, higher union you get a tested skill certified employee that if he /she does not work out send them to hall and get replacement time saving for both parties involved

Wow, thanks for the explanation. It certainly sounds better to be in the union there. I wish they worked like that here. Here you just pay a monthly fee and if you're lucky, get a newsletter every once in a while. I am not a member anymore, needless to say.
