    Motor Carrier Act of 1980 initiated the demise of the smaller union carriers, which placed the burden on the larger companies to support the pension funds.
    This has lead to the situation we now face.

    It also was the basis for NAFTA.

    Gapooh,
    I said that they were running 16 quarters at record profit, not that they had an extra 1.whatever billion dollars sitin around to buy Roadway, USF and the truck line in China, was it the wrong thing to do at the wrong time to do it, I think we can all agree on that point .

    That question would probably be a good thread to start....might have 180,000 responses and kick the server in the "nether regions"

    Regardless of the Motor Carrier Act, why hasn't the IBT organized any meaningful companies in the past 30 years?

    Did you think they dont want to organize trucklines?? I have a few fishin buddys that work for Teamster companies that arent in the trucking sector and their benies are nowhere near what ours are.. They pay for their medical, a 401k retirement (which isnt a bad thing) they dont have the vaca or sick time, yet still pay the 58.00 a month dues.. Dos this maybe clear things up a bit??

    Not really! You didn't honestly answer my question! Meaningful companies the IBT has organized in the past 3 decades? Is membership in the IBT up or down in the past 10 years? 5 years?

    Good Morning,
    I'm on a roll tonight because my fellow Teamster Brother's, whom I have worked with, after the closure of my barn 3.5 years ago, will be subjected to lay-off on May 14, after the current COOP. They have suffered financially, just as I have!
    They are descent, hard working productive employees! AND they deserve better! Seniority ALWAYS prevails, regardless!
    I am sad and hope the current COOP allows the rest of us to WAKE UP!!!

    I give him the right to be upset/angry. Sooner or later he needs to let it go and focus on what he can or cannot control.
