    In Chicago there are a lot of driving jobs, I'm not sweating my next jig. Would not mind driving for ABF.

    Just because there are lots of jobs doesn't mean you'll be getting one of them.

    all I did was offer alternatives to NO suggestions and lay out the consequences. Vote your conscience- live the consequences...

    In the very Few places I suggested a Yes, I stated there are those with no options- vote yes for them and use the extention to find something better, like I did....

    Maybe someone who recalls CF can verify this for me.
    I believe that, if, YRC closed there would be a flurry of activity for about 3-4 months, then, the dust would settle back to normal.

    The theory that" I will follow the freight" only works, if, all of our competitors are currently at 100% capacity.....They are not!
    Therefore, there will not be as many jobs gained as jobs lost.

    As far as the drivers go there are a lot of drivers who just got this job for the money and would go somewhere else for the same money. A lot of drivers will look for work in another field anyway. Chicago has plenty of driving jobs available.

    Yes you did Jim, but you were on layoff when you did find your better job. At some point don't you think it's time to find out what they want before we vote. They want us to just say yes then they'll tell us what we have to give up. No raises for 5 more years? loss of sick days? Just say no and see what comes about. I've heard nothing here but a letter from Welch saying he's under paid at 700,000 a yr and getting his stock options. What will the board give up? They were suppose to share the pain but that didn't last to long. How about they don't get to cash their stock options in until 6 months after the end of the mou even if they quit. That's the deal we got.:27:

    They are not asking you to vote for a new contract at this point all they are asking is for a consensus on if you are interested in discussing a early contract negotiation.
