Because of this being sensitive topic, I shall remained nameless, but here is what I do know someone out of our branch here in San Bernardino, ca.Is trying to Organize techs, salesmen, and repair crews into joining the teamsters.

So far I have seen management pull out all the stops. Even after an email was sent out to all the techs including myself, it brought quick change. So much so that even Angie Harbin the community relations director for service master flew out to talk to us and calm us down, that service master cares and is doing everything to help us. Well a week later management had another meeting and they announced they are going to be giving us back some of our money from cancels they penalized us from months before.

So a few of us here at the branch reached out to the tech, that's trying to organize to let him know were interested.

Because if management is willing to give us back money over just hearing about a union, how much power would we have if could Join a Union.So my fellow techs now is the time to rise up, reach out to your local Teamster or unions, we have nothing to lose at this point.

To nameless, from what I know the union fight in san Bernardino is over, apparently the terminix management and corp, found a bs reason to fire the tech who was leading the charge for a union with the teamsters.From what I heard they fired him over refusing to use granules on a house that didn't need it and a safety cone.

I heard he is fighting his firing with the help of the national labor board, but not sure what's happening with that. It sucks for that guy cause there was a few of use that were on board and hoping to change how terminix was treating us. Even they changed the new pay plan it still sucks, and makes it even harder for us to make a decent wage.

I say if you guys are going to attempt it meet in secret with the few people you do trust and contact the local teamster in your area for support and ideas on how to organize.I still believe a union for us is the best solution to making a living wage with this company.

To all techs, a group of men and women out of the terminix branch in Mokena, IL.Were able to organize and pull off a union win.

And our now part of Teamsters Local 710. They did something many have tried, they worked together and are now able to sit down and come up with a fair pay plan among other things. If you are at a branch and everyone there feels like it can't happen, well it did.

I would say reach out to the teamsters at Local 710 on how to organize and get a union at your branch.It's time terminix realizes they need there employees, and all we want is fair and living wages to take care of our families.

As a tech with 20+ years experience, I have always been proud to work for Terminix.I used to brag about how fair they were and how they watched out for their employees.

I can't say that anymore! In the last 18 months. We are expected to work 6 days a week and basically have no life. There are new petty rules coming down each day that make it increasingly difficult to perform the job as it should be done AND we get to deal with all of that and have to endure a pay cut as well!

They tell us to give the customer what they want, but they want to dictate the customers scheduled service time whether it is convenient for the customer or not! As far as the new pay scale, they tell us we will not lose money, we will make more because overnight we have now become salespeople as well, without having been hired as a salesperson and receiving no training! The only thing that this company has accomplished is to add work to us. In the past, the techs that could sell could actually could go home and say "I made extra money today!" but now they have to sell to try to come close to what they should be getting paid to begin with!

How does that motivate employees!?! It is pretty sad when the customers are saying that the only reason they stay with Terminix is because of their tech, but they add that they will be willing to move to another company if their tech moves. Wake up Terminix!!!

It is good that we have legal counsel included in our benefits,...

Another pay cut for residential techs.They're taking 1.5% of your production right off the tenure.

That means for doing $24,000 of work in a month, you'll lose at least $360/month. That's before they take more money out for impossible retention goals.

Every month, our branch reports less revenue but higher profit.All that extra profit is coming from our paychecks,
