Discussion in 'ABF Freight System' started by toilet paper, Jul 3, 2016.
Who will you be voting for and why? Keep it polite and on topic please.
Zuckerman, giveback after giveback with the Hoffa regime not to mention cspf. We just got back to where we were 4 years ago, thanks Jim....
Hope you guys lead the way of concession free contracts going forward.
Zuckerman... it is time for change. It is time for us Union carriers to get back to where we once were and bring the pride and respect back to the job. We are professionals and we need to be compensated for it and treated like it. Most importantly, we have a contract coming up and we need the best representation we can get to get us a fair and respectable contract.
Zuckerman only a fool doesn't learn from his mistakes...lol.
Zuckerman here for all of those reasons stated above. Plus, Hoffa sucks. (I hope that's civil enough)
Is there actually a pro-hoffa freight guy out there? Its like bigfoot, I've herd of them but have never actually seen one.
We all need to remember freight membership does not carry the numbers it once did compared to the general membership. Most contacts are bargained at the local level with smaller bargaining units.which means most members opinion of the Union is based upon what they are told at the local level and their contact. They have no idea of the dead weight at the top of the food chain selling freight down the river.
Anybody but Hoffa and his crew.
Only one I know of is Tyson Johnson for obvious reasons
Zuckerman just can't take any more of the greatest contract's
Come down to 070, I'm sure you can catch a couple wearing their Hoffa t shirts.
Guys out of our Detroit barn love wearing those Local 299 Home of Hoffa tshirts.
Zuckerman, no question about it!
Your totally rite there. Most of the rest dont pay attention to pension fund and the decline in freight. Even now they show teamster power with trucks! It sickens me
Fred Zuckerman and his entire slate. Clean out the entire rat's nest....not just the head rat.
Bro. Stickman is absolutely correct about Teamsters contracts negotiated at a Local level. Most Locals do a pretty good job with employers and home town contracts. So many Teamsters who aren't covered under the national contracts negotiated by Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck are under the impression that the Teamsters "leadership" is doing a good job.......
........or they just don't care. Last General Election only 39% of Teamsters bothered to vote. And the bulk of those , I bet, were covered under National contracts.
61% of Teamsters got that big, giant envelope in the mail.......and threw it away. Zuckerman and crew have a very good chance of taking advantage of the apathy Mr. Hoffa,......and other Labor leaders......have allowed to fester in the rank-and-file.
I had a T-shirt made up after ratification of the "ABF" Master Freight Agreement that said:. R.I.P. NMFA
1963 - 2013
Done In By The Son Of The Man
That Created It.
I wonder how well that T-shirt would play in Local #299?
Randy Shepler, nominee for Eastern Regional V.P.
The taller of the two,.....with the dyspeptic expression and the moustache that looks like a pushbroom for cookie crumbs......well....who the heck let him in here?
Actually, I wanted the photographer to shoot only my good side.......but he refused to lay on the floor.......
I was just talking to such a crew and was/am doing my best enlighten and educate them.
And a far cry from what I had envisioned, I can't picture that guy reeling in a #150 halibut in Cook's Inlet right next to me.
