Word: a union membership does not guarantee job security

Word: to fellow library technicians, just because you are in a union that does not guarantee you job security. Saying that “it is not in my job description” will not promote your career efforts or garner you much respect by fellow colleagues who do not share your attitude. Closing yourself off from learning new skills that “is not in my job description” you are sometimes negated for shirking the additional responsibilities or opportunity for advancement. When I choose to take on something that may not be in my job description I feel as though by learning these new skills it enhances my position and my value to the organization.
