    I've seen a UPS Brown truck cross Teamster picket lines. 10 years ago I was still driving for Yellow. Teamsters threw up a picket at Sysco Foods on 62nd St, Indy. I pulled across the road, parked, and called dispatch that there was a line I couldnt/ wouldn't cross. Dispatch acknowledged me skipping them. I watched a UPS Brown van cross.

    Only because our government is making them cover the pension for the employees in the future. :17142:

    Probly used a manager. My old beverage company would have. Of course I'd get my commission with or without filing a grievance.

    You guys list a lot of competition companies but you leave out the gorilla that's sneakin up from behind you. The United States Postal Service. They are running trucks with nothing but amazon packages on them and they are running them early and often. You had better turn around and look.

    We handle alot. But it can be absorbed by others.
    It would be a definite cluster. But never say never.

    Only because congress mandated pension be paid for future retirement obligations. Unlike yrc.
