    Either that or you dont do anything when youre at work? Is that it, you are already a freeloader?

    Gotta wait on getting unloaded, but you don't remember that, huh?

    I took a risk, won 17k at the labor board, we won the election, still no contract. Can't squeeze blood from a turnip.

    Its steel, and I've got a few trailers. Lots of wait time. Can't rush the crane operator.

    Your idea of taking a risk is holding up your trousers with just the belt instead of the usual suspenders too.

    My idea of a risk was starting a union organizing drive after they hacked our insurance.

    Must be neat, working a whole career at the last standing nmfa carrier. You're a lucky guy. Not everyone is so lucky anymore. I tried. I found out, the hard way, how little stand up most drivers have anymore. You stick your neck out, you get your head chopped off.

    Sorry, I cant draw. Stomping your feet and throwing tantrums is more your style, not mine. I just get thrown out of meetings for yelling, remember?

    Its the non unions that have to try and keep up with the Jones's not the unions.

    You've obviously been retired a little while then! Nonunion shops have been upping pay to keep the seats filled, meanwhile the union shops can't grasp that they are worth some coin, and settle for meager increases.


    I gotta ask a 3rd time, what shop has a good contract in your opinion?
