    You're a lying piece of :crap: who gets paid by the Union Busting Company that XPO hired. You're paid to troll this site and convince workers to vote against their own interest.

    You XPO guys are getting conned by this troll and others like it. You guys are fighting against a corporation by yourselves, you need someone to back you...Get some balls and join the Teamsters!!

    More Teamsters=More Bargaining Power

    To all of you union guys, I am not anti-union. If the unions stood up for the things that they were intended for(The workers), but it's more and more apparent the Teamsters only care about the survival of the Teamsters. It comes off to me that the only reason you want me and my fellow employees to vote union is to help your own situation. At least this thread was originally about the union but you guys hijack every thread on here to propagate your pro union nonsense. Seems to me you want us to join to do what the current brotherhood didn't have the balls to do.

    In short, "get your house in order" then come see me

    Myself personally I would be furious if I had to say that after years of concessions I was "now back to where we were 4 years ago"...

    Same here. And after the second yes vote which added more concessions, that was all of the :2437:that I was willing to accept. So I bid them a sad farewell........:sadwavey:

    The Cadillac tax starts at $27,500 for a family. Our family plans in central states is $17,040.40 a year. Well under what you need to be in the Cadillac range. Its page 223 in the ABF Contract book.

    They also fixed the one thing we was lacking for Obama Care. The part of birth control. As of January 1st 2016 the wellness plan also covers woman issues for free which covers birth control. Not sure if the birth control is covered completely but is under our prescription plan. It hasn't been submitted for approval yet but does cover what we were lacking under our plan. It's on the Central States web site. Don't know if all plans are the same in different areas though.

    It was a contract not concessions. Same thing could be said about not being paid overtime.

    Anything negotiated less than what you already had is a concession, plain and simple. And it took 4 years to get back to where you were to begin with. We have received raises every year through those 4 years. Regarding overtime, I have said repeatedly that OD should pay overtime. But they don't, and they aren't breaking any laws by not doing so. Any driver coming to work where I am knows their pay scale going into the deal. Also, as a linehaul driver, overtime doesn't apply to me anyway. That's why I'm in linehaul. After doing city and not being paid overtime, I have no interest in ever doing so again.

    Ok, so back in April & OD was not working you every day would you consider that to be some type of concession? You can get 10 raises a year if your not getting paid they don't mean much....

    Those are 2 separate things and you know it. If that were the case we would all be under concessions because hours/miles vary every week.

    When I was hired they told me their was no guarantee in a 40 hour week, did you expect to work full time when you were hired? Not picking on you just pointing out not much difference in the word concession in any company....
