My supervisor is also my union rep. That seems counterintuitive.

I'm gonna try to keep things vague.

I'm a new hire at a municipality, coming from different municipality.

I'm an entry/associate level hourly engineer, he's a 20+ year senior level salaried engineer.

No real problems yet, and this rotation is only supposed to be less than a year. Is this setup common? It seems extremely screwed up to me.

Supervisor does not necessarily mean management.

It’s odd at least in businesses the company management is non union so they can bust balls and step in when a walk out happens etc. If he’s not gonna ride you because he’s a fellow member and your steward I saw don’t make waves.
