For almost 15 years ( 1988 -2004 ) I had worked in radio. In all of those years I was never part of a union nor had I signed any contract much less a non-compete. Come to think of it the only paperwork I had ever signed in regards to employment was the usual tax stuff for W2s. Anyway yesterday I had a job interview and the supervisor who had did the interview was shocked that I had told her about me not being part of a union and the lack of contract when I had done radio. My question is this...was I a rare bird for being employed in the radio business and NOT being in say the AFTRA or having to sign a contract ?? I get the feeling that I was since so many postings on here and elsewhere is about so and so not having their contract renewed or being part of a union. For the record BTW for most of those 15 years I was employed full time in radio.
