B/S,there isnt 2 people at thre former con/way who would stick together let alone protest anything!
Looks like a stunt indeed. Them union boys are getting desperate.
If they wanted to make a stand and show us all how great they are, they should take care of their own house.
I agree. I wonder why they don't protest the leaders that stole their pension?
"Noting the union's decades-long struggle to stanch the bleeding in its freight division, where membership has declined by about 350,000 during the past 35 years, XPO said the union "will have to look elsewhere."
About says it all.
How we all choose to forget Laredo. Still enjoying that "raise" ?
Won't bore you with my credentials but will give my opinion. Teamsters still haven't got the memo of cleaning up there act BUT they are the only group that will help us. We have accepted every cut. I met the most recent president and respect him as much as Dave Miller. I respect fight. Verizon workers are willing to fight us xpo ltl drivers are willing to accept
What has been cut?
They cut my lean journey short.
Today is status quo with a small raise, we accepted higher medical and a laughable retirement.
You won't find much support here or amongst the rank and file for lean. Biggest boondoggle in conways history. Even worse than the nascar sponsorship. My eye still twitches when I see the signs.
I interpret that as you being pissed that your gravy train got derailed.
No that was sarcasm. Lean created waste and animosity. Company gets paid to move freight period, lean cost much more than it saved
if you have done any research on the subject of Central States Pension Fund you would know that no "Union Leaders" stole a dime. The reason for its troubled state is multi faceted. The federal government itself has had the fund under trusteeship since the mid 80's and sat by idly as the fund declined. Numerous employers that filed bankruptcy and didnt pay the withdrawl liability, and the federal bankruptcy courts didnt award the fund money during liquidation of those companies caused the lack of funding that it suffers from today. Those are only a couple of the issues that damaged the fund.
This article clearly shows the BJ is going to speak for his employees whether they like it or not. The Teamsters can give XPO drivers A VOICE OF THEIR OWN. You have the chance at making a change and having control of your destiny
I had the teamster give me a voice twice and they talked alot of us out of a job
How did they talk you out of a job?
Take it elsewhere. Read the rules stickied at the top.
I worked for a union before, worst job I ever had. Nothing but empty promises from the Union. I'll never make that mistake again
There is a thread started on the yrc forum take the question on that forum where your actually allowed to ask questions....
What if Jacobs decides to pulls the plug on xpo after he said all good things were going to come from this purchases. Will you never work for a non Union company? Or Ltl in general..
