Ask a union member AFL-CIO
I am more than happy to talk to you and answer any questions you have about being a member of a union. I am specifically a member of the Hypnotherapists Union, which is a part of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations aka the AFL-CIO, which has nearly 13 million members in the US.
Despite the fact I work in a "right to work" state where unions are discouraged, I still maintain full active union status and get all the benefits and drawbacks of being in a Union.
I can answer some questions. Like tell you what my union can and does do for me, how I maintain my shop as an employer, how to join a union, if they really do control my pay (meh, yes and no), etc. Things like that.
Just let me know if you have questions and I will do what I can to help you out!
Training & Qualifications
I am a member of the Hypnotherapists Union Local 472, AFL-CIO. They are the most strict certifying agency in the USA for hypnotherapists.
And before you ask. No I am not making it up. Yes, hypnotists and hypnotherapists have a union. Yes I think it is weird too.
Availability & Preferences
This depends on if you want to do email or phone/Skype.
Email I am usually available.
Phone/Skype I am not always available. I can send you an acuity scheduling link for if you want to talk on the phone or Skype if we aren't both available at the same moment.. Or you can go to my profile page, use the personal website link as it is my Simbi scheduling and it goes right into my scheduler. It also sends you a reminder before the appointment and all the ways to get ahold of me.
