    Yes it is, I don't do this job because I get a kick out of honking that air horn. But Tri, when the freight jockeys at YRC have taken it on the chin four times while the principal officer of my very modest-sized Local (less than 3,000 members) is on that $150,000 list, there's something very wrong about that. My Local has been hemorrhaging money for years, nearly all of it because of bloated salaries and "perks". We are not all that far from being broke. They evidently don't care.
    Now, here's the bigger problem. If the CEO, President and other top-rung officials of this company get nice big bonuses this winter while we continue to suffer, that's just criminal in my mind. The IBT, who we pay a BUNCH of money to supposedly look out for our interests and assure "equal sacrifice" between management and labor, will again show that they don't care about us either. I can assure you because I've seen the paperwork that management at all levels has a bonus program. Whether or not they actually have received bonuses is something I don't know, but there is a program.
    The suffering that we have endured while these "fat-cats" have gotten fatter is a travesty of mammoth proportions. How do we correct that?

    A good union man isn't all about "gimme, gimme", he's also about common sense and the PRESERVATION of unionized jobs at a time when non-union jobs are growing to our disadvantage.

    PS - One more thing, a good union man doesn't object to new hires getting full rate just because he's a spiteful crybaby who went through progression himself in the past. A good union man doesn't vote down something for someone who doesn't even get to vote.

    A good ‘union’ MAN sees the bigger picture and wants the best for the most. He understands ‘the greater good.’

    The first offer from the last MOU was abhorrable in that it created a separate wage scale. If y’all recall, it was voted down by the majority!

    At this point union has nothing to do with it. It's all about keeping your job.
