    I don't blame you. I think most the guys are like that. I need the work because I'm only getting partial unemployment. Now, next year, maybe I will turn MY phone off. lol I really do appreciate you guys letting me work though, it really helps.
    Biz really seems to have picked up. I really think we'll all get called back in Feb. Also, while I was out last week, it seems every terminal got their uniforms couple weeks ago except us. WTF? Phil said he called them and they said they will be ready next week. [​IMG]


    p.s. I got a GD speeding ticket in Ok City the other day. Bastards!

    Ya I got couple warning tickets he said cant get a letter for those. Tell Larry(The Steward) about it see about filing a grievance. To get it reduced it don't hurt to try. Save yourself in long run.

    You can often get speeding tickets reduced to something less painful to the CDL if you talk to the DA about it. I once sat in on a traffic session and could mot believe my eyes, it was 'let's make a deal' at its finest.

    The military have uniforms. They don't pay for them either, courtesy of us tax-paying idiots.
    Perhaps we should all march in unison also. Warden. Commander in chief. What's the difference?

    When I worked at Roadway we had 75 bids.Yellow had about the same give or take.Then they merged us together under the same roof and after the smoked cleared there was about 105 that worked and everyone else was layed off or moved with the change to another location.So now after three and half years and a couple of changes later their down to fifty bids!Of course losing all the road work and the u.e. didn't help.My freinds that still work there said they just cut six more jobs and you need at least fifteen years seniority to hold a job.So tell me,where the hell did all the work go?

    Sadly, most of it is being performed by FedEx and ConWay.

    Do to poor service and managers that do not know how to manage you are right about Con-Job and Fred-X.
    Here at 881 we are begining to see where Non-Union Reddaway is doing work RDWY & YFS used to do. Also the interlining of freight between the two appears to be YRC giving to Reddaway but not getting the points YRC services back. The former owner of a cartage company who sold out to ODFL has reappeared as STI and that is where our freight is being funneled to. Remember the company that YRCW wanted to interline the home deliveries a few years back ??
