    And there goes Plunger Joe with his clip art again. That garbage has gotten you banned before. Not once but twice if I remember correctly. I thought Muler had banned him from this forum or the site altogether for a while.

    I have a bag full of documents from tyson the turncoat and the IBT telling us to vote yes on the beg back or ABF would close soon. That was almost three years ago. And let's not forget the new companies they have BOUGHT since. YOUR VOTING ON FACTS NOT FEAR BROTHER ALWAYS!

    The teamsters at ABF were not persuaded to grant concessions. And I believe rightly so. The financial conditions were and remain vastly different at ABF than were and are at YRCF. I believed the SEC filings by YRCW. And when a corporation is losing BILLIONS a VERY compelling argument can be made to grant economic relief. Such was NOT the case at ABF.

    Here is one question that I would ask myself. If yrcw was and is so bad off why do lenders keep giving them MONEY? You and If both know they don't throw money in the garbage. So think of that when you ponder the great yrcw mess. YOUR NOT TRUSTING THE BANKS BROTHER ALWAYS!

    Another thing in your post that shows that people voted out of fear and not fact is the sentence that states the ABF Teamsters were not PERSUADED (not CONVINCED)!

    Thank you for a well thought out respectfull answer. I agree with the position all this has caused. It would seem that you see the Union as an Ideal and I see it as People. That leads us in different directions in our thinking.

    And Now it is time for me to admit that I have failed. Over the last couple of years I have tried my dardnest to get the insults and inuedndos to stop. My message and posts have always been about Unifing the members. And yes by attacking those guilty. With the Moderator Muler it is not posible. He can continue to imply YRC cowards, name call and and insult the Teamster leadership for all to see, even try to devide his own Local. I will no longer participate in his foolishness. I have not given enough credit to the Drivers that come to TB to see the truth on their own. For that I opologize....Carry on Muler...Your the Man

    YRC has a network worth waiting for better economic times. They have the best brands in the industry. Roadway, Yellow, Holland, Reddaway and New Penn are top freight companies. Loans are backed with assets. They shall return


    thank you, JP Morgan

    Unless my response or comment is clearly meant amuse I try to choose my words wisely. That of course is why I opted for persuaded rather than convinced. In our vote I was persuaded to vote yes. I had and still have lingering doubts. However I felt the outcome was more LIKELY to be the end of YRCW.

    You really have a problem. I have never called yrc Teamsters cowards. If you feel that is what comes from my post then you may have deep issues that need addressed. Where have I tried to divide my own local? You have really went far out there. I like you and others that come to this site have ideas and opinions and as such I post them. If I am not a hoffa fan or a tyson fan that is my rights under our constitutions both as Americans and Teamsters. I post the truth and if you know other wise prove it. I post links and proof so for you to say that is just a shame to see what you have stooped to. Just because I am a moderator does not mean I can not post my beliefs as you are allowed to do.
    But if you don't like the way you are acknowledged on this forum just leave it is just that simple. You will not get the backing of the ABF Teamsters on here because they can see Thru your post. All I have done is post where you were at best misleading in some of your post. If they were not then post the facts and links I would like to see that. But if you think you are going to come to our ABF forum and trumpet things that have affected our lives in a negative way you are MISTAKEN! I don't think you will ever be remembered as a great unifier in this forum or any other. Just Saying. YOUR SAYING GOODBYE IN ADVANCE BROTHER AL:WAYS!
