    check www.nemf.com I heard they make the road drivers give up a lot of waiting time... saving money on the backs of the workers... I remember one driver complaining a while back that he lost 200 dollars in hold time a week when they changed the policy.. crappy union, I think they're machinists, just to keep the teamsters away.

    forget NEMF


    please, if you want a union job, don't go there. their union does suck. they are in a machinist local and their hourly pay & pension is below what we at YRC & ABF get. you will be better off over here. good luck.

    Learn something new everyday. I didn't think NEMF was union at all. THey may have a weak union but at least they have some representation.

    skidmard, i think new penn has a terminal real close to lebanon. they work under the same contract as the other 3 you mention in case you need a fourth option.

    They have the worst equipment in th eindustry. For the amount of revenue they generate they should be ashamed of themselves.

    The owner and his family are heavily involved in politics in the tri state area. I believe his daughter is a member of MTA board, which runs the NYC transit system.

    Big money, but they cut corners on equipment and facility maintenance. They do spend on customers and stuff like that. They own luxury boxes at both Madison Square Garden and Continental Air LInes Arena.

    I guess it is better to be a customer than an employee, but that can be said at almost any company.

    NEMF was a NMFA Teamster job until the owner & the mob had them replaced with a union more friendly to management.

    I had coffee with a NEMF driver last night. He told me that he has been there for 9 years and is still not at the 100% pay rate.

    their union truly sucks. that sounds like a DHL job. the co. makes ton of money. they own about three other non-union outfits along with NEMF and they low-ball the workers and the union allows it. disgusting !
