The IBT wants members cause there is political power in numbers. Without any numbers EVERYTHING the unions fought for are at risk of being lost in the laws in D.C. becaus as the nuimbers diminish so does the political clout. And as our Clout diminishes the corporate clout increases and D.C. will do anything the corporations want. AN d I don't doubt that drivers will be required to work 80-90 hrs a week before 10 years is up. And they'll hear "If you don't like it you can quit on a daily basis." They didn't just fight for your paycheck. They fought for laws. And if they cease to exist ,mark my words the fate of the working driver in the U.S. is in sad shape for years to come. They could stand up with 400,ooo people in the MFA. You can't bark too loudly with less than 40,000. poiticians listen too numbers of people and money. With no money and no numbers we are nothing. Which is why card check is important.
