    Management just discovered (he-he) they can give a shift a 3 hour early call. In hour local that means you get OT on the front end. Well for the last 10 years it’s been 2 hours. Actually we have had bids taken down because they tried to make an entire shift come in 3 hours early on Monday. Only answer I get here is there is a 3 hour force on the end of shift.

    They are gonna save turning the trucks up until 2019 as a carrot, to get certain members to sign a :shit: pile contract.

    Want to save your union jobs at Holland? Tell every xpo driver you come across to vote the union in. Do the job Hoffa is too lazy to do

    If most were honest with themselves, they would have a hard time coming up with reasons as to why they are paying Teamster dues, much less coming up with reasons to get XPO drivers to join.

    I know the truth hurts, but making believe the Teamster leadership is for us, and working for us, is only fantasy.

    Not to get off the topic of the thread. This might be a little lengthy so I’ll try to keep it short.

    The lady next door to me is 87 years old and the best neighbor you could ask for, she lost her husband 22 years ago he was a retired teamster. She had a salesman come to look into a stairlift and asked me to come over so he didn’t try to take advantage of her. He wanted $12,000 for two lifts. When he left she said she wasn’t going to buy from him because she didn’t like him, she told me she could afford the monthly payments
    Because she gets her husbands teamster pension and she’s lived ok off it after losing him and how greatful she was that her husband looked out for her.

    If we could still say that about the teamster pension funds non union guys would be lined up to sign on.

    By the way I found her two used lifts for $1500 that my son helped me install, they work fine and she’s happy as could be.

    That's Right, pay the rate or lock the gate. It's pretty simple, and why should we accept less than our non Union brothers. Get a list of all non Union LTL carrier's that make more than we do, send it to jr's office, and tell him to do his job. He works for us.

    Tell it like it is wongway. Nobody wants to hear it. It's like looking at a gangrene limb and pretending it's not there. Hoffa and every pro Hoffa supporter at the local level are responsible.
