    I can't let that remark go!
    Everyday I see so called PROFESSIONAL TEAMSTER BROTHERS think about themselves, here are a few examples,

    1. Getting back 15%
    2. by damaging freight
    3. By milking clock
    4. By putting guarteed frt in nose of trailer
    5. Loading 1 0r 2 skids of proper frt in nose then bury with relay.
    6. Too damn lazy to pick up a board or strap on dock.
    7 . Bitch about trash can running over then saying not my job to empty.
    8. Think it is cool driving in yard with out headlights on,
    9. Walk right behind forklift then yell at driver for not looking out for you.
    10. Bitch about management but won't take intuitive to do your bid right.

    Wait till sh.... hits the fan, you will hear these guys say it's not my fault.

    There is a difference between joining the crowd and protecting good jobs and lively hood of Teamsters to follow.
    There are men who fought to get what we have. I am discussed to watch it pissed away by too many.

    When I started the older men lead by example, I am not sure we are putting or best foot forward today.
    More revenge against company than respect for the job and craft.

    Some facts to think about when voting , after we gave back -15% pay & week's Vacation & lost pension payments , YRCW Corporate gave them selves all a nice Bonus and awarded themselves free stock shares and they all stayed at full pay & pension , so how is this 'Equal sacrifice " ???? time to grow a set & stand up for our $$$$$$ and week's vacation back and full pension , or lock the gate ................

    I don’t think you understood my remark in regards to 15% comment
    I don’t agree with a guy opting out of central states. We have to keep paying in for the ones who are retired and the ones who is approaching retirement. We stick together on this not just think about yourself. Not what a Union is about.

    Wow you expect me to remember two days ago....you ask a lot.....yes I did and I fueled along with every other driver at my barn. If you are going to bitch about me being a bad brother or something your barking up the wrong tree. When my steward or BA addresses the situation I will take appropriate action, until then I am following the rules. I was just suspended two days in December and I am on thin ice right now so I am being a real good boy for a while.

    That’s a rule you are breaking. Gotta love a road driver that chases .50hr before he goes home every week. Had that same problem in Spartanburg for a while til company screwed us over fueling. Please remember you have to do the same to progress disciplinary action. So if you were to honor work rules it wouldn’t help your current situation. Do you even read your contract?

    Not taking anyone’s side here you guys,but if,some,of the work rules that have been in place for literally decades,that are not cost effective, and could be either eliminated,or streamlined a bit,the operational savings to the company could maybe then go towards larger increases in wages moving forward?
