    I guess that's why Big R(Bklyn) is getting two guys from CCX. One starts this Monday and the other next week. Go figure?

    That is a very true statement. I also worked for CCX for 4 months. The funny thing is that when I started on my p+d run, I did not know the area at all............. I was absolutly shocked when a 30 yr. experienced Yellow driver stopped and helped me with my run. He took time out of his day to organize my stop:rolleyes: s for me, showed me what stops were open for deliveries at lunch time, and always gave me a helping hand moving heavy freight. When ever I can I try to help him as well as pass this small lesson on to others that need a hand.

    This driver from yellow opened my eyes that we are all in this together union or non.... just making a days pay to better our familys.

    ya,I kinda figured thhey did that,too,saw it,heard it many years at OVERNITE,sad thing was,years ago,alot of the younger guys did believe that anti-union crap,I don't think anyone of em ever had even a relitive that was ever in any kind of a union,let alone the TEAMSTERS.over the years, I'VE managed to educate them on the importance of a union,and union representation,held meetings if they wanted,so they could ask questions,gather info.they've come a very long way,know they are will and eager to learn more,also to join,since the days of 'f.ck the union',like the company tried to drill into them.remember some of the guys in my barn were even afraid to talk to union drivers on the street,at stops,out of fear of being fired.like I stated in past post's,I have seen first hand the benifits of being in a union,both grandfathers,greatgrandfathers,for a time ,my father was a teamster,then uaw member,and a few uncles that were teamsters,saw what it did for my famillies,and the gains that they made through their hard work and sacrifices,proud of em.:tribehasspoken: :bgroovy: :cool: :bgroovy:

    Well if your family was all union members and you saw what it did for them what the hell are you working for a non-union company for:chairshot: Sounds like maybe a union company wouldn't have you.:bgroovy: So now you just spew por-union speck to antigonize others and make yourself sound inportant. By the way in another post you ask if I work for UPSF I was a city driver for 8 years and have been ofn the road for 13 years and this company is great to work for.:smilie_132:
