    You must’ve googled on a Tuesday.......Tuesdays and Thursdays I bring the black Maserati.......Mondays and Wednesdays I bring the red Bugatti......

    Fridays,....I let the chauffeur decide what he wants to drive.........

    I retired also, back in June. 41 years total,....25 with ABF. I, too worry about my comrades in the Freight Wars. I was the steward for 16 of those years, so I still get a few calls from former co-workers.

    Yup,.....Retirement is Great. The only reason I go down to the Ol' Terminal nowadays,.....is to do donuts around the TM's 1978 Buick Skylark with my Italian sportscar.........(....sportscarS....plural....)....

    My chauffeur has kind of hinted that he'd like to retire also,.......but I told him no one else would hire a 96 year old man,...so he might as well stay.....

    No, Brother,......you're dealing with.....technology......There are NO coincidences with the state-of-the-art equipment they've installed.....

    No glitches or failures, either.

    Everything "wrong" is the Driver's fault.

    I can go anytime. As to when exactly, that depends on how mad and miserable they make me on any given day.

    Ft. Myers-305 has a UE guy that only runs a halfway meet with Atlanta-086 at around 550 miles. Wonder why 305 is not on the list, when this should definitely be road work....

    Yeah I know this makes me a bad guy. However the run out of 054 to beckley wv to meet an 064 driver is road work. That needs to be canned for sure and returned back to road work!

    For years, ABF just can’t seem to figure out who they want to be.

    I agree my friend, the company is going back to operating like it did 20 years ago. Elimination of UE positions when the Industry has been demanding fast on-time regional service is but one small example.

    This is where ABF starts making very bad decisions

    Interesting how ABF is making more outdated business decisions guaranteed to fail. Keep chipping away at the Union part of the company until it fails. Overload us with garbage freight and more insurance claims. Run linehaul off a cliff, quietly create more unease, especially during contract time and most importantly... make sure Panther is running as smooth as glass no matter what’s really going on behind the curtain.
    Sound familiar? Meh! What do we know, we were told don’t dare strike or we would be done...
    Hey!! Here’s a little secret... we’re alread dead.

    Hopefully not dead. I’d like to see how fast they’d come back to the bargaining table if we gave a 72-hour notice to strike.

    We received a letter stating that the union and management was going to meet in Scottsdale on Jan. 30th, tho finalize the agreement. I went into work yesterday and was told that them two parties moved it up to yesterday without telling us.

    Word is...UE is toast, no change of operations, no following the work, 8 employees will lose their jobs.

    That is some tough negotiating on the part of our representatives.
