    It finally happened ... as I read on the Con-Way forum, the company has changed their name to Conway Freight .... or CF.
    Quess that is what they always wanted, CF to be non-union !

    Just getting some activity going here .....
    Don't take it to heart. CF was a great job and many of my fellow workers still talk about it. We were a family, that's a hard thing to lose when though no fault of your own your family is taken away.
    Bottom line ... DON'T TRUST CORPORATE AMERICA !

    Junk because it wasn't purchased for a $1.00 like some other companies.

    Why do you say that trucker4cf? Nobody has ever been banned for expressing their opinions.

    They may not have changed the name to CF but they sure did recreate the company

    What they did was legal .... and planned for many years. That was to remove the union from the CF empire.
    Nothing to be ashamed of ... just corporate america at it's finest !

    trucker4cf, I assure you that you would not have been banned for expressing your opinion.
    The way you expressed it may have violated the rules but offering differing views does not get someone banned

    or doing things the CONsolidated freight WAY. point is the old cf is gone, sianara sista, adios muchasos, so long, fare well, stick a fork in it. if they did start plastering cf on everything, would it bring your job back? would you get that warm fuzzy feeling again? i doubt it. the old cf had it's run, couldn't evolve with the times, and got left behind. happens every day, and will continue to happen as long as capitolism exisists

    But it was the master plan of Jer Det to get rid of CF from the get go. He told me himself at orientation, many years ago.

    Greed has a way of hurting those that let it take over. Yes con-way was planned to get rid of cf. Now con-way has the same mindset . I do not feel sorry for those that are in so called power at the top. Let the chips fall where they may. I have a lot of freinds that got hurt when cf closed. All I ask is that people start to understand what is happening in front of them, and not be quiet or say that it don`t matter, that the company is going to do what it wants to. There is a old movie out called the power of one. Alot of people need to watch it.
