    We (Memphis) have been threatened by management about using cartage in the city. Today I was told scab trailers were dropped on the yard. Any thoughts or course of action will help. They blame this action on absenteeism. Only on Monday’s and Friday’s.

    It’s doesnt make since. $80.00 dollars an hour is what they are willing to pay for cartage plus greivance loses. Come to work guys.

    I don’t know how the southern region is, but in the Carolina supplement they can call an emergency hearing on subcontracting cartage. If they can show proof of consistency in shortage of drivers on certain days the panel will allow them in.

    They complain about not enough people to move freight, but the last
    Bid TM changed 10 8 hour jobs and to 10 hour 4 day work week to cut overtime. 4 day work weeks have never worked in Memphis and never will.

    It's in the contract that the SHEEP voted YES on , they can use Cartage and most all barns are using them and funny part there trucks run faster then our 61- 62 mph trucks ?

    Yeah , we have had 6 Cartage Straight trucks at $80 bucks a hour for over a year now and still can't move all the freight and even some barns have Cartage semi's pulling out trailers and even YRC has CRST pulling YRC trailers , but funny thing is they have money for Cartage but no money to bump up our pay to match the non-union scale ?? and key point to remember is that the "YES SHEEP" voted cartage in and to the UNION stood by and watched it happen !!!

    No cartage today with around 30% off. These sick days are like new money in the young guys pockets, it’s burning a hole in them. Use them all now a cry latter how awful managers can be when unpaid time off hits them.

    Get on your dumba$$ brothers, that's what we do at my terminal. FMLA abuse is out of control. Company is in survival mode. Lose customers<use cartage

    Leadership should be replaced. Yes f you don’t have the capacity to deliver freight volumes then jack the price up until very lunes fall to a manageable level and make greater profit per delivery by not hauling break-even freight

    I guess if each Union man has learned to make it on 15% less then let them manage with 15% less manpower. What???????
