    My favorite part was the 16th paragraph. Anybody who did not like Carey is really ill-informed. He cared about us. He cared about workers.

    To each their own. I just wish Hoffa cared 1/8 as much about the Teamsters as his father or Ron Carey did.:smilie_132:

    I'm tired of hearing the same thing. I work at con-way and i personally had nothing to do with cf going under or you losing your job. i was in complete disbelief the day i heard. no one in their right mind wants to see any great american company shut down. you need to point the blame in the right direction (not the workers). remember, con-way was created by cf and it was basically cf (all the big wigs) that shut cf down.

    You are right Con-way drivers did not shut down CF. It was Management, mostly the shut down king BRINKLY. Would like to see some more money for my claim though, think you con-way guys could chip in!!!! :smilie_132:

    Some people don't realize that anyone can look at a piece of company equipment and get upset. It's the same for an ex Tews/LaFarge driver here. Now they are all over again too, with a different name, and without a union of course. I hope the best for anyone who has endured a closing. Some people will not understand what it feels like until the gate closes on their nose and the next day, the same $#it truck with a different name on the door and a cheaper driver goes past. Have a good one excfman.

    now, i wasn't too familiar with the frt. industry back then as I was just a casual with NPME when CF went out of business. however i will never forget that day. my next door neighbor was a driver at CF at the time. anyway, what was Hoffa's response to this article ? seems like he was using "out to business" excuse huh, just like the Red Star fiasco. sorry but this guy will always in my mind be a complete joke.

    wow, no post for 1 1/2 yrs. Well we can all read on the conway and conway truckload (cfi) boards that the conway ltl hate the conway truckload, truckload taking their work. they probably still can't see what we saw. now with yrcw we see glenmore running off with more than we agreed to in the contract. what do ya do? we are peons and corporate will do what they do. Union does what?
