    Thanks for the update flstc2000. I really didn't expect anything this fast anyway.

    It is probably very close to the truth.

    A friend worked at CF till the close.After the close he went to UPS .While at UPS, his facility, had a visit from UPS top management.My friend started a conversation with one of them and when he stated he previously worked at CF,the man from UPS top management said UPS tried to buy CF in 1995 and also again right before the close.We all know the outcome.

    To wish 25,000 men and women to lose their jobs is as bad as what CF did to you. My wife, my two kids, and I had nothing to do with you losing your job nor did the other thousands of drivers, mechanics, office personal, and their families.

    If Con-Way shut the doors tomorrow, the ones that made the decision to close down CF wouldn't hurt one bit.

    One more thing excfman, I remember the day they shut down CF. There was not one person at Con-Way who I talk to about it, was glad that CF shut down.

    It was, and always has been the executive team that controlled Consolidated Freightways destiny. Their decision to close was based completely on the money they would stand to make.
    Bankruptcy allowed them to liquidate and sell off all property owned while cheating the thousands of people that not only worked for them, but who performed services and supplied goods to the company.
    I wouldn't wish any company to close .... each man or woman needs their job to support families and themselves.
    Last time I looked we are all in the same boat .... struggling middle class people hoping to do an honest days work so we can pay our bills and provide a decent life for our kids.
    Now as for those members of the executive team, and John B. ( the liquidator ), I hope the day comes when they must account for what they did in the name of money.
    Said it before .... may they be consumed in the fires of hell !

    I had my ideas about CF and the closing. It's amazing that nobody sees this as a "corprate decision" to close a union company. As a RDWY employee you guys don't know how close we were to the same ending when we were "spun off" from Roberts Express, Viking, Spartan and RPS back in the late 90's. They wanted the same result for us too. DS.

    No you didn't make me mad, I was hired by Con-Way who was owned by CF with the Teamsters blessings. I have nothing to say I'm sorry about, except that I hate that you lost your job. There was nothing I could do about it.

    Your right I don't know what it is to walk in your shoes. But to wish all that bitterness and hatred on others that had nothing to do with your job closing is wrong, and I hope over time that your wounds will heal.

    this thread has ran it's course.and is so far off topic that it is now closed.plus the following rule have been broken over and over.


    1)Do Treat people with respect.

    2)Do Not resort to childish name calling if someone does not agree with your view.

    6)Posts deemed to be just mean spirited posts or posts made just to antagonize others may be removed at the discretion of the site administration, the idea behind this site is to create harmony amongst people in the transportation industry.
