I think the local unions will be broke from paying out strike benefits if we have to wait for the sloth-like bureaucracy that is the NLRB to rule again. These are the original charges that instigated this labor action, this is the first regional board ruling. The union played fair and they won, reinstatement is the right thing for Oak Harbor to do at this point. As far as the customers go current freight levels, and yards full of empty trailers contradict your statement. For the most part I don't think customers care much one way or another as long as they are not brought in to the dispute. Why would you be telling someone that just won the NLRB decision that they made their bed? That just makes no sense to me. I say Teamsters return to work in their former functions and seniority and negotiations can continue as they had in the past, the VP's can keep ol' Rexroat on speed dial and do it all over again if they want, but I doubt they have the financial fortitude to go through the union breaking process all over again.
