    I guess they haven't seen how many members Teamsters has or compared the two profiles side by side. I can say with much confidence that OHFL will go down well before the Teamsters will!!

    Yeah, you guys might want to talk to your BA and find out that NLRB has settled all the outstanding charges against OHFL. Now it's OHFL's turn to file ULP charges against the Teamsters and there will probably be a class action lawsuit against IBT in the near future.

    There are only 3 days left in January and I don't think OHFL is going to be shutting down anytime soon. Unless Shifter meant some other January in the future.

    Sounds like this dude is too young to have been kicked in the a** yet by these companys. Oh i forgot the boss man treats me like family. He has a hot dog roast every summer and gives all the wives a flower and the kids all the pop corn they want.And also the boss man said we will only have to pay 60% of our health insurance this year, what a guy.

    Hard to say,
    . Bigger question is can they ever get their self respect or respect from others back.

    there's alot of self respect in food stamps, unemployment benefits
    very few of your brothers had enough money stashed away to go this long
    most people live week to week

    Most are doing fine, at any rate they can still look at themselves in the mirror and have some self respect, as well as knowing they are doing the right thing, by fighting for what is right.
    Unlike the spineless that have crossed. If this is ever seetled, no one says that we have to speak with the traitors.

    Don't you understand that your concept of "right" is a relative one, and not absolute? What one person feels is right in this situation is not necessarily what is right for another. I have respect for those on each side who picked their side and are conducting themselves in a respectable manner. The ones who should have trouble looking themselves in the mirror are those who are so unsure of their position that they feel they need to bully or intimidate those on the other side of the fence. That goes for both! I don't care if you're on the side that's holding signs or on the side that is crossing the line every day, if you truly believe that what you are doing is right you will feel no need to treat anyone else disrespectfully because they disagree with you. In fact, the actions of those few, shall we say, outspoken members discounts the validity of the side which they are representing.

    I'm a 80 yr old messenger that had an envelope to del'v to the trucking office today.I'm not doing any thing wrong. I sat there for thirty seconds while they blocked me and another guy. the guy going out got called :censored: by one of the upstanding teamsters. I got called an old cracker.
    good luck, cause I'm telling everyone I know about how fine a bunch of guys you are !

    At one time, they probably were a fine bunch of guys, then they drank the Kool Aid. This is what the Union wants, mindless sheep, marching in a circle. Why, because some guy in black jacket says to. That's ok. Hold your head high. You're standing up for what you believe in. How dare the company ask you to pay 2% for your medical. Who do they think they are? You'll show them.

    Just another person popping off as if they knew what they were talking about. This uninformed advice sure does get old. Here is an idea do some research, and find out what this strike is about before you discredit yourself any further.
