    I didnt realize that the paycuts were authorized yet. Did I miss the vote? Then again, it is the IAM, isnt it?

    speaking of which... does anyone know how that came to be? It's the International Association of MACHINISTS and AEROSPACE workers...

    we aren't machinists and we aren't aerospace workers...

    so I am really confused as to how that came to be:Off-Topic:

    O.k someone asked how we became members in the IMA. Well I am with NEMF since 1987. I started in 01 later move to 68. So lets say I am here over 20 years.
    One day in the spring of 1987 I was told to go down to an office in 01 & JOIN THE UNION. No one asked for this union but they were a bunch of guys from the south. We questioned them who ask them to come in. They were 3 guys who very liked by the company.
    You see they it was a way to kept the teamsters out. Mike had 8 teamsters left & would not sign the master agreement. He told them he would go by the agreement. So these 8 guys got a separate check with their pension money. Well some of these guys took the money & bought new house new boats one guy got a race horse.
    So in closing all I am saying I trust MS. I read what was written about him but you don't known the man. So vote yes you will get your money back.

    Let's not rewrite history buddy, there are court papers around here that tell a different story - right puff?

    http://www.truckingboards.com/trucking/upload/81445-post44.html

    Part of a link about the mob trial that led to the machinists affiliation with NEMF.

    As I recall Myron S. had another company that was organized into the Machinists Union (Apex).

    After the NJ Rico trial linked him to a sweetheart deal with Anthony Provenzano and the Teamster Union (paying them off to keep them from organizing his whole company). The government decided that the teamsters could not represent NEMF. He was then able to to organize everyone under the Machinists Union.....

    Lowest paid, not hardly.

    BS pension? Maybe, compared to the teamst..... oh yeah, that one doesn't exist any more. Anything is better than nothing, which is what yrc and the teamsters are heading for.

    Be gone, bitter troll.
