    He was probably fighting the "spell check".......

    Of course, Brother Mitch, .......we'll let him slide because he was making a good point.......

    After all,....... we're truck drivers...... more proficient at pounding the pavement,...... rather than pounding the keyboard.....

    He didn't wear shoes. He wore hob-nailed boots........

    To get back to the original thread topic....... We're working on something in our area, and it's very heartening to see how our Local Union officials are receptive to the idea that ABF employees should be on the Two-Man negotiating committees when contract talks start...( probably before the end of this year).....

    I hope the rest of the ABF barns across the nation have similar success with getting representation by their peers.

    Anyone hear who Mr. Hoffa is putting in place of Tyson Johnson as the IBT Freight Director?

    The official resignation notices from the IBT about Johnson and Sweeton went out yesterday............


    How proud they must be, that along with their boss ,...... they pretty much wrecked all the national contracts they were in charge of..

    The Moe, Larry, and Curley of the Labor Movement......

    School bus drivers now have a national unifying contract,.......... just about the same time the NMFA gets balkanized Into various little contracts.......... Mr. Hoffa sure has his labor priorities straight.......

    Polite applause Mr. Johnson, Mr. Sweeton........."Good luck in all your endeavors"...... and all those other "polite" things to say........ Don't worry about the mess you made,...... We'll clean it up......

    I am ambivalent whether there's any cleaning this up. I'd love to be wrong, but this is a brave new world we live in.
