Congratulations to Ernie Soehl on being named National Freight Director. Ernie fights for all our union brothers and sisters at all of our panels. He applies the contract fairly to all members. It's great that we finally have someone from the "east" fighting for our NMFA and Eastern Supplement. He does tell it like it is and you know where you stand when you ask him a question. All the armchair quarterback's that rail him really don't know him. Walk a mile in someone's shoes before you talk about that person. I've been to many panel hearings and saw firsthand how he handles himself and the companies listen when he speaks. Good Luck Ernie!
