I've checked my copy of 'Growth With Menards - A Team Member Information Booklet' (printed 06/2004). The afore mentioned booklet is not copyrighted, but does include the following disclaimers: 'This brochure is a unilateral statement by MENARD, Inc. Of company policies and procedures.

To be a result of references to the Menards Team Member Handbook. Into the store he works in, the MM employee acted like the.
The National Labor Relations Board, in response to complaints prompted by an in The Progressive, has found that the home improvement giant Menards committed multiple violations of federal labor law. “The employer has maintained unlawful and overly broad written agreements with managers and supervisors,” as well as “unlawful and overly broad provisions in its employee handbook,” the NLRB determined, according to a to Seth Goldstein, senior business representative of the Office and Employees International Union, Local 153, based in New York City. The notice was sent by Jessica Gibson, a Milwaukee-based NLRB field examiner.
Goldstein against Menards after reading The Progressive’s December 8 article on how the company’s written agreement with management staff included a specific threat to slash their pay if the work areas they supervise opt to unionize. Prior news accounts had made reference to this threat, but The Progressive article included the actual clause from an agreement signed in 2015, provided to the magazine by a management employee. The NLRB found merit to five of Goldstein’s eight complaints. It determined that the company’s written pledge to cut managers’ pay by 60 percent in the event of a successful union operation was a violation, but took no action, as the company has already removed this language from the agreements. I work at Menards, not as a I work at Menards, not as a manager. My impression is that this is a greedy lawyer.
I feel like unions are there to protect employees from abuse by their employers. Menards treats it's workers very fairly from my experience. They start people at $10 per hr, compared to WalMart who has only recently raised its starting wage to $9 per hr. After being heavily pressured We also receive weekend pay, an extra $2.50 per hour. Part time employees enjoy dental insurance, and full time dental and medical insurance.
John Menard sends all 45k employees gifts periodically. I've received a nice Menards hat, and a silicone oven glove which are just random gifts, he also sends everyone something on their B-Day. Sure it may not sound like much but he's paying for 45k hats, oven gloves ect, and that adds up. The managers at Menards were working 12-14 hrs a day 6-7 days a week during storeset. That's a pretty grueling schedule, but at Menards all managers are paid HOURLY, so they don't put people on a salary and work them to death for a low set pay.
What I'm trying to say is that most of us Menards employees are pretty happy, because were treated fairly, and decisions at Menards seem to be based on people AND money vs most corporations motto of money over everything. So do you need a Union to protect you when the owner is doing the right thing already? I mean if your paid higher than the average retail employee, given benefits that the average retailer does not offer, and treated with respect why do I need a Union to come in and protect me from the company that's already doing what's right? I respect Unions, but they should go after places like WalMart that treat their team members like garbage, and stop trying to squeeze people like John Menard who are trying to do the right thing. Treiber Allwinner A31. I don't agree John Menard on many of his political views, but as far as a acceptable respect and compensation level for his team members, we see eye to eye, he's very fair.

That was 2008. The claimed they were paying 'half'. They routinely interrupt lunches. Prevent leaving the property for said lunches. My contract stated 'department manager must be on the property during all business hours.' Our hours over the weekend were Friday 12-10 sat 7-9 sun 8-7. 1 manager on duty the whole time.
Unable to leave. Leave the property and you got fired. You also had to be available. That's facts. No exaggeration. Becky L more than 1 year ago.
You don't know what you are You don't know what you are talking about. I take it you have never been part of a Union. You like your 40 hour work week with overtime after 40 hours? You like the fact most jobs not all give you the weekends off I won't mention vacations because that is still up to the employer. Workers Comp and health care. I worked for a union for many years except when I was in the military. I was always treated with respect by my fellow brothers and sisters.
Unions become an extended family and are there for you in a time of need. When others are in need be they union or not we are there for them as well. You know nothing about unions and union pride. Proud to be a retired member of IATSE and if you don't know what it is then Google it.

Menards is a large Midwestern home improvement chain most notable for the by its. How much does Menards hate its own employees?
Menards owner John Menard—richest man in Wisconsin, major donor to Scott Walker, and workplace overlord who forces his employees to sit through anti-union seminars—oversees the third largest home improvement chain in America, after Home Depot and Lowe’s. He has tens of thousands of employees.
(He also controls the company privately, so its policies cannot be blamed on anyone else.) Last week, Menards made news when that it made managers sign a contract stating they would lose 60% of their pay if employees formed a union on their watch. That provision has reportedly been after a backlash ensued, but not soon enough to prevent a against the company being filed with the National Labor Relations Board by the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU). The culture at Menards remains one in which it is not, you know, fun to work. The Menards employee handbook (2010, but still in use) includes this overview of the company’s view of employee relations: Even by the standards of corporate retail chains, which all hate unions, that statement is rather blatant. Among the company’s “moral and legal effort to maintain our good Team Member relations,” according to the complaint by OPEIU, is an unlawful attempt to ban gossiping in the workplace. Here is a portion of a Menards “Team Member Pay Rate Increase Merit Review Eligibility Notice” document, listing the reasons that a manager might cite for denying a raise to an employee—a list in which “Gossips” is prominently included: Not only is banning “gossip” an insanely vague and intrusive rule, but the NLRBthat a company’s “no gossip policy” was against the law. In any case, we hope that Santa brings John Menard a very strong union drive for Christmas.
