[quote author=pup driver link=topic=82494.msg852728#msg852728 date=1280452996] Is Duie Pyle a Teamster company? I wouldn't know as they are not in the Chicago area . [/quote] Just for trucking history acknowledegement as followed. Duie Pyle were Teamsters in 1979 they decertified after a lenghty strike of like 14 weeks or so? Prior to deregulation in June of 1980. They are the only ex-teamster carrier that I know of to decertify,survive ,and thrive in deregulation era of rucking. What also helpd their bottom line is they wharehouse at various locations in Ohio,and the Northeast, have a truckoad division via owner operators, LTL, :and do the infamous as all outfits have done at one time or another LOGISTICS!!!!!!!!!!!
