Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 850:I'm not involved in my union other than paying my dues. Does this really matter?
You tell me. Unions have a lot to offer:
1. Contacts in other members
2. Free movies
3. Content on website
4. Networking/family events
5. Educational/Technical seminars and materials
6. Discount tickets for movies, family trips, rental cars, etc.
7. Credit Lines
And much more... see if your union has an orientation that addresses all of the benefits of being a union member
There are also political decisions being made on your behalf. Wouldn't you like to know and even be a part in decisions affecting your income, benefits, safety, etc?
