in thread Should Programmers Unionize?

my employer seems to think that I'm valuable enough to let me get away with these things

He lets you get away with those things because he knows damn well that he's ripping you off, anyway :-)

How would being a member of a union benefit me?

More money ... that's how.

    How is my employer ripping me off if I being paid above award rates? If anything, I'm ripping off my employer by not giving 100%

    Unions seem to be able to raise the award rates at times, but they won't do anything to raise the wages of those being paid above the award, which would mean that I would lose money if I were a member of a union.
