    What's the meeting about? Is it a genuine union meeting? I don't see a Local # affiliated with it. Who's buying breakfast? Who's invited and who's not?

    Maybe if someone called the phone number listed on the post we all might have a answer as to what is on the breakfast menu, the cost, & who is paying for the grub. von.

    No need to call... lol I'm stumpy I'm the shop Stewart for YRC freight in Orlando, The flyer you're seeing is something that I post every month for our local meeting on the union board at my terminal and on Facebook for all the members. The breakfast is just something that I do every month to get everybody together before the meeting.

    Well now I understand...I couldn't imagine a union meeting at a public venue.

    Yeah, let's not worry about the meeting until you find out who's paying for breakfast.

    The Brother does something to bring his barn together once a month and show some solidarity. I'm sure that's something some of y'all would not understand. I posted the notice so those at L 385 would see it, as well as on social media.....Stumpy is good Steward.....kk

    I was being a smartass, guys are more worried about getting a free breakfast than they are about their livelihood. Damned shame you have to bribe guys with a free meal to get them to got to a meeting. Kudos to you for doing it.

    lol Believe it or not I never offered them a free breakfast most times I sneak off to pay ... other times one of my brothers beats me to it, Great group of guys here in Orlando. I'm all about changing the culture. If any of you guys are ever in Orlando would love for you guys to attend. We all need to stand together. As a shop steward I'm only as strong as the men and women that stand behind me.

    You must be a newbie, a truck driver will traverse the country to the call of a free breakfast!

    We were lucky to have 10% show up Sunday 0900 for a freight meeting. I bet if it was held @ a breakfast house the attendance would double or triple. The way to a union mans heart is through his stomach. von.
