Typical Yellow management, going to try to go to the well once to many times.
I would be very interested in what the "significant operational improvements" are. We could decide for ourselves what would be a fair market value for them.
You New Penn driver's are being kinda QUIET on contract talk opinions , But we really need every New Penn driver to VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE this time around
If what they’ve already agreed on was good, they wouldn’t be holding back on telling us.
Today is the 17th the MOU is supposed to expire on the 31st. The Union has already gone past what would be considered a fair amount of time for members to receive, share and debate a proposal before voting on it.
We do vote. in case you have forgotten, we solidly voted NO on the first MOU and were left standing alone by our fellow Teamsters.
From what I gathered from the letter, it seems that the operational improvements were being valued as a lower savings by the company, higher by the union, as you would expect. The value if these changes figures into the monetary compensation part. They might not want to tell much about them in case they changed. Who knows? I'm curious as to what the work rules changes being discussed are though.
This forum is usually pretty quiet Wong.
Yes and this is why we all need to stand together and VOTE this time and please help spread the word to every fellow teamsters to VOTE !!
I know awhile ago there’s was some talk regarding drivers fueling their own trucks, something on roadmen making turns, switchers being able to go out of the yard ( which we just recently started) stuff like that.
Everyone needs to be reminded what Hoffa did at UPS.
I wouldn't think those things would be much of a difference, do you?
I don’t. And I don’t know that’s what they mean by “ operational changes”. I only know that it was discussed a few months ago. But management looks at the whole picture, how many drivers are used as fuelers, switchers, runners through out all 3 companies?
I stopped trying to understand their thinking awhile ago.
