TruGreen employees need organized representation. I will list the reasons below.

1-The pay system is unfair, half rate overtime is paid.

2-The treatment of employees is unfair.

3-Managers are encouraged to treat hard working employees poorly by upper management.

4- Long term employees are harassed into leaving.

5- Poor working conditions.

6- Constant sexual and other forms of illegal harassment are ignored by management.

7- Seniority means nothing.

8- No real pattern to promotions and raises.

9- Poor medical benefits.

10- Toxic waste and working with cancer causing chemicals.

11- Poor training.

Any TruGreen employee/associate reading this message,I encourage to contact a local organizing entity such as the Teamsters. You need to grab your future and forceably make Trugreen a better place while protecting yourselfand your family.

Had an Experience with Trugreen?

Every branch in every city, town and state should operate with the fear of being unionized. This company deserves it. It stole from it's employees for nearly two decades and has promoted a toxic and unsafe work environment.

You place far too much faith in unionization.The only thing a union would do for you is demand monthly dues which they would then use to bribe politicians while ignoring members needs.

Take a look at any of the large unions.

The bottom line is that if you don't like the conditions under which you work, resign and find another job more to your liking.This is not rocket science.

Save your corporate union avoidance training provided drivel for someone dumb enough to buy it.I walked out on that *** ball company nearly a decade ago and have not looked back.

My current job is a union job and it is the best one I ever had. There is a system of grievance and complaints are taken seriously. Work place safety is of utmost importance and not one of the workers is "lazy" as you brainless twits have been instructed to say. Trugreen on the other hand is dishonest, unethical and they border on criminal.

The work environment is toxic, it is unsafe and the upper management is incompetent.

They practiced wage theft for over two decades and should be forced to pay every employee who worked in that time frame back.Had the workforce been unionized, it would have never happened.

Unfortunately attempts to unionize TruGreed fall flat in a hurry!Right when you hire on with them you get writer's cramp signing-off on a bunch of Release Documents.

One is where you must declare that you will NEVER attempt to form nor join a union while being an employee of TruGreen.Plus managers go thru a training seminar every winter on how to curtail union discussions/activity

I went through that training while I was there.It is chock full of lies, union stereo types and misinformation.

It, like every thing else related to that company, relies upon the ignorance of it's workers.

The illegal pay system, the overly aggressive production goals and illegal sales tactics were more examples of their taking advantage of their employees and customers.They are the worst company ever and deserve to be out of business.

Yeah, it sounds like a good idea in theory except when you take into consideration TruGreens history when dealing with unions... The last branch/division that breathed the word "union" was shut down overnight resulting in over 50+ people becoming unemployed the following day.

Either they should unionize or be forced out of business.They are that bad of a company.

Would they go so far as to close every branch if there was a threat to unionize each one?

One would hope not but nothing would surprise me with this company.Their upper management isn't the brightest lot on earth.

Unionize today TGers. That is if that horrible company, lead by total incomptents, is still around in a week from now. From what I heard they are heorrhaging money like a peptic ulcer does blood.

I am reminded of the old labor union slogan: "An Injury To One Is An Injury To All!"
