I also started to document every physician complaint I get about her. While I cant fire her...I started overloading her with work...hopefully she will crack.

You cannot go to each of the contractors to try to get a better rate. They all talk to each other to set prices. The rate of construction is also slower since they can only work in a set amount of hours each day set by the union . Also the prices will change by the season so if your project goes beyond your pre-negotiated contract you could look at very steep extra labor costs. I think unions are good when there are limits to them.


A lot of the problem with construction unions in the Northeast has more to do with the mafia controlling the unions than unions themselves. Watch the Sopranos and you know what I mean. Required no show/no work people on the payroll typically costing millions of dollars.

This article is about the longshoremen union but it's the same situation with construction unions. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/22/nyregion/no-show-jobs-taint-new-york-harbor-waterfront-commission-says.html?_r=0
