Difference between a union and non union electrician
Updated On: Mar 14, 2013

In most cases there is very little difference between a union electrician and a non union electrician.

Differences
·        The biggest differences in most cases are wages and benefits. Union electricians earn on average 40% more per hour than non union electricians. This does not mean that non electricians are 40% less skilled than union electricians, but union electricians bargain collectively with their contractors for higher wages and benefits.

There are far more likes than differences. Roughly 45% to 50% of union electricians were once non union workers. There are far more reasons to look into becoming a union electrician than not. And the best part of all is, if being a union electrician is not for you, you can always leave.
