    No secrets on the Estes forum. I need to know what Elvis is up to.

    These fuel prices are just going to add to the many problems they already have. No telling what the final outcome will be.

    Okay, okay, you made your point. I wish I could jump in the time machine and revisit the old high school days. Seems like just yesterday. On career day I should have told the counselor I wanted to be a porn star instead of a truck driver. I would be waxing my genitalia about now, getting prepared for my next scene, instead of trying to back pedal on a message board with a fellow truck driver, come on. TE out...

    I'm up to no good. You and Beerboy will make good Teamsters one day. Hell, I'll make you my stewards. That's how much confidence I have in you. You, Mr. Mildew, will make a very good "cry baby". When this thing bottoms out, and it will, the "cry babies" will be there, as they always have been, with a pin in their hand, and you will snatch it and sign. TE out....

    As long as I'm a very good cry baby, I guess it's a compliment coming from you.

    Only if you waxed haha. No harm no foul you know that.

    I don't get wound up about a message board. That's all this is. Kinda like the Internet CB Ch 19. Radio Rambos hiding behind a keyboard. I tried at one time to be open and free and guys take it the wrong way and misinterpret , blow :shit: outta shape. So I just stay to myself.
    I talk to a few like minded people but being everyones buddy just gets ya burned. Amazing what people try to use against ya in the name of "friendship".
    I should know better by the way LTL drivers act in person. Stab, stab , stab everyone in the back. Worse than politicians.
    Back on topic ..... That's the very reason unions are loosing ground and a huge organizing would never happen. No working together when your getting screwed by fellow workers and union members themselves.
    It's society nowadays that grows selfishness and "all about me" this immaturity has infected the teamsters union form top down. Also non union barns "all about me" that's the new world order. Sad to say it but it's the new term for manhood.

    oh so true... my friend is a shop at UPSF,and his biggest problem is that the old timers want to keep things the way they were.. everyone for themselves, and the newer generation wants to do things by the book, as it pertains to the contract. needless to say, my friend is very busy person trying to take care of issues, because ALL drivers do not want to play on the same team, that me me me sindrom. so with that being said, a union is only as strong as the people in it

    One more time: History has shown us how Estes reponds to any orgaization effort. La Mirada unionized....fine bled them dry and opened up non union 295 riverside. Remember 065 rock island? After an organization effort, the 065 was moved to Quad cities. Or how about terminals that just get axed: 110, 108, 014 just to sight a few examples. It is not possible for an individual or a terminal or multiple terminals to bring the union to Estes. you will be viewed as a contagious virus and exterminated. a bonfire they will use an ocean full of water to put out. It isnt even worth dreaming of unless the dream ends with you and your followers looking for work. If you want a union, go work for a company that has one. The big E will NEVER be a union shop.

    That's right. You forgot to mention 029. I don't know what those idiots at 014 were thinking not to mention La marada. Those 014 guys went to the home terminal running their chompers about that :shit:. Anyhow, they are back up and running at full schedule now without the riff raff

    I really like reading this thread here.. No name calling back and forth Evil vs Good .
    Now I will ask this question kind of off topic but I wonder every time I see one of these trucks.
    Back in the GI days their was an outfit that pulled GI and Estes trailers. They were white International tractors and I believe they were out of the Southern confederate states. I see the same trucks with a GI logo now that has been modified a bit and says GP. Are these the guys I see running up and down i- 10 doing Estes line haul ?

    I think everything we drive will have these Estes logo. We do have some white trucks and some H Depot dedicated truck with a HD decal on them

    We have plenty of outside help but not sure about Gp unless that's a western thing. Don't know for sure. I mainly just work here even though I may come across as a goober smooching company man at times. Lol
