    When you finish giving your thanks,like it or not, go back down the road, the Teamsters need to be on top of your list!

    Straight out of a Union worker.True in what you say.But,we all are still a dime a dozen.There are a lot of drivers that would jump at a chance to get a job here.So you draw a fine line when you think that without me they wouldn't make it.Just saying & we see how that representation work's out today.

    Personally I’d rather a cut in hours with the same gross pay because of the overtime... Who wants to spend more time at work?

    I think we are all going to be impressed by how busy we are going to be this next year. It’s been amazing just on the threat of tax cuts.... imagine how it’s going to be now that it actually happened!

    Exactly. I end up working more hours but it’s way more worth it monetarily.

    Yes, I am thankful. Thankful each and every day. I am done with my road time for the day. Now Teamsters. Nope. Many years ago I went down that road. Sorry but I don’t believe in the corruption and stuff that I see going on. I’ve never had a problem here and when I disagreed with something I went and sat down with management and explained my position. Sometimes there was a compromise made, sometimes I had to grind my teeth and go on. Each of us has the freedom to make that choice. That’s why many of us wore the uniform. It’s like a couple of people coming to my door and trying to get me involved in their idea of religion. I have a choice. I choose paganism, so be it. But I will not put down the other religions. Freedom of choice.

    Fly, I'm sure you go back a few years, but you just touched the tip of the iceberg, had you gone back to the fifties, you find
    you did not have the freedom or option of walking into the bossman's office.
    You tell him it;s not fair, his brother -in-law made double your pay the past few months, he might send you out the door with
    your hat between your legs, job hunting.
    He calls his friends at the other trucking companies and "blackballs" you, now try finding another job.
    Corruption? yep I've been there done the whole 9 yards, played a big part in sending 3 local officers to the pen.
    But the good far outweighs the bad.
    Union or nonunion, you owe the Teamsters for the benifits and pay scale you enjoy today, not the kindness of your
    employer.
    BTW, you best stay in line or Billy and I will post all your secret parking places on TB.

    What kind of issues could a line driver ever have worth sitting down with management? Get in that truck and keep the door closed. No wonder I'm constantly waiting on you guys.

    This bonus been a good start, but come September when this company has made more money than it has ever made they better put that OT @ 40 on the table for all their hard working hourly employees.

    The rest of us don't deserve it. Only you deserve it because it's required by state law.

    That’s confidential information Billy. Prima donna’s don’t need to know. I’m always looking for ways to make my job easier and faster. I hate seeing the city boys here eating donuts and bagels crying about how they can’t handle 5 stops. By the way Billy, is it you or Ump? I heard a interview with the owner of Goatagram. Out of Washougal. You order a bouquet of flowers. He shows up with the flowers and 2 goats. Throws the flowers down and the goats eat them. Unbelievable.

    Sounds like "Fake News" to me, Ump claims his goats don't eat garbage.
