    And you probably won't hear from him on this thread. His next post, whenever that might be, will probably just be the same old Teamster bashing on another thread.

    Hit & run, never backing up his charges. Never willing to enter into a debate.

    First you got to get a union that is aworking mans union , not one run by the owners. Thats right, NEMF( Shevell Family) control the union. If you don`t think so ..... just do things the right way and see how long you`ll be there. NEMF changes company faster than you can blink, got it Hope you find better place to drive for.

    Let me say first off I am an Eastern Freightways driver and have been for 6 years.
    The divisions have not gotten along in the time I have been here and doubt they will. The union vs nonunion dynamic and the tug of war over equipment usage seems to be the major culprits.
    Shevell has hired some new Management in the past year to take the entire family to the billion dollar level. They claim they are operating at the 400 million per year mark (all divisions tallied together) and are considering aggressive growth and possibly even buying some competitor.
    I believe the addition of the Terminals in Ohio, Virginia, and Chicago are designed to expand the operating area and attempt to muscle in on the other players in those markets.
    Eastern has been tapped to run the line haul trips from Chicago to Pawtucket thru the Irwin terminal.
    Eastern has also attempted to put on teams to run coast to coast and dedicated from Camp Hill to Miami. The teams are burning up the highways and doubling the companies revenue for the new trucks that were added (unfortunately those trucks are not team friendly but are solo trucks being used for teams). Perhaps the next group ordered will be the full size 780 volvo models most other team operations are utilizing.

    In regards to decertifying the machinist union I seriously doubt that will happen. I have heard over the years that if a teamster push became evident the terminal in question would be mothballed overnight. Any mention of unionizing Eastern would result in the same sanctions. Personnel have been hired that are sticklers for bottom lines and profits so if anything I would watch for some serious givebacks in regards to the insurance premiums. The fact is Eastern drivers started paying for our medical benefits about 2 years ago now. Each year it will rise, negating any increase in driver wages.

    Eastern Freightways used to a good teamster job back in the day ..It's a shame to see them back as a non-union ..

    2 different companies as far as I know crazy. I may be wrong but I believe the original Eastern was purchased by New Penn and folded into their operation.

    The original eastern was merged with Spector ,I believe the end of the seventies.They both went down the drain.I don't know the exact of 'who bought who',but I do remember Specter running the big doubles on the NY Thruway with both trailers ..I am sure there is someone on here who can clarify this,but I am sure they "Eastern" were Teamsters...

    It's all somewhat fuzzy to me crazy but you're right. They were Teamsters. I still think we are dealing with 2 different companies with Eastern Freightways and Eastern Express.

    OWLPUSS I think your wrong on this one..Associated transport and Eastern freightways were both 30% owned by Myron Shevell who is the owner of NEMF.If you look at easterns trailers they have the logo "on the ball" on them..I believe there the same now as they were 35 years ago...

    Now that I think about it I believe it was actually Red Ball express that was sold to New Penn.

    from Northeast Trucking, Truckload Carrier, Freight Services, Third Party Logistics, LTL, NEMF

    In 1974, Eastern acquired Associated Transport, a carrier beset by severe financial difficulties. Shevell served as president and chief executive officer of both companies. However, by1976 Associated's problems, combined with a major recession, proved too much even for Eastern's solid management. When a consortium of banks backed out of a restructuring plan at the last minute, both companies entered bankruptcy and requested to be dissolved.

    the Eastern they are talking about is Eastern freightways, the one with the "on the ball" logo that is part of the shevell group today.
