    They want a captive audience and no opposition as they try to imprint the evils of the Teamsters on those who don't know the truth. Kind of like the non-Union Companies do in their brainwashing anti-Union meetings. It sounds more like a cult than a Union. I'm sure that their Anti-Union attorney has them do it this way......it's very transparent to all of us.

    Well this driver I worked with got kicked out for being a trouble maker,the Teamsters took his union card away from him.
    He lost his membership,and was no longer required to pay any dues.
    But because my trucking company was a Teamster company,his wages,and benefits were paid per the union contract.
    So when he retired he was able to get a union pension.

    It depends if they are in a right to work state or not. In a non right to work state, they have to pay a percentage of the dues even though they are not in the Union.

    In a right to work state, they dont have to pay anything and get to freeload on the members that do pay their dues.

    I am sure that thought is a comfort to you as you race to the phone booth for your next "pod" meeting. Oh wait, they've taken the phone booths out! Now what?

    At HRS any APWA Lit. that is posted on the bulletin board, isn't even up a day and it get's ripped down. Middle mgnt. know's the APWA is just a arms lenghts away of calling a vote. And no, Mickey Kelley and Frank Egerits do not run the APWA meetings. But I guess you would'nt know because you never had the GUTS to go to one.That's your stupidity. Please do not reply to any more of my post's, I'm getting bored of ignorance and stupidity of people like you.

    i didnt no you cared that much by my post.---Local776's comment of "if your with your partner 24/7".... making jokes and quick one liners makes for good times, but also reflects your intended goal of discrediting the APWA with superficial jokes-- which is mainly what the IBT has been reduced to lately.
    by the way i am not apart of a union,but to discredit The apwa they have done a good job themselves.

    350 workers in KC and their meeting a few Sundays ago had about 15 in attendance......not looking too good for the apwa.

    You work for yrc. How would you know?Why dont you keep your nose in your own company?Of course it probaly isn't going to be around to much longer. I heard it's pretty easy to steal freight from yrc, your service is lousy.
