    Anybody else having problems with scabs being called in to do local work? Apparently it's ok as long as ABF says "we're trying to hire".

    Yeah, it's part of our "wonderful" contract. They can subcontract local Cartage now, provided every employee was "offered" work.......

    I hope Hoffa and crew have figured out a way to get Union dues out of those subcontractors. We don't even have an interline agreement here,. ....although Lord knows they've begged the Local many times. .......Glad I got good Local officers.

    Once or twice since the "lovely" contract has been ratified have they subcontracted out local work. Go sit in your truck, chock your wheel, leave the keys with dispatch, we'll let you know when you're loaded,.......we don't need no untrained safety hazards on the dock ......They got to follow the safety rules......

    Everyday for almost a year. They have a sub come in and run a local run besides what we give them outside the 25 mile radius.
