Also, if you don’t pay the initiation fee up front, you can pay it out quarterly. When I joined in the early '80s, it was $600. I think it’s $1K now.

I just went thru the training center to get my BST, Im a new union member (tugs direct hired thru the company). listening to the guys that sail deep sea and sit in the hall for jobs, man it didnt sound like a good time. seems the guys that had perm spots on ships were happy but the others were highly discouraging about going deep sea, and to a man were looking at how to get on tugs to have a steady job. just my two cents brother
