    The way it works is if a road run is eliminated the road driver can bump someone below him on the line board not P&D because it is two different seniority boards.

    If there is a lay off then that person goes by company seniority. If he can't bump on to the line board then he bumps on to the P&D board. Or his other option is to quit.

    So you are right Ap as usual.

    You can dream on to webidiot and take what your teamsters can get for you and like it. By the way which is quite a bit below our pay. So I would say so far Overnite and UPS has done better for us than you teamsters have done for you while you guys were Motor Cargo. So give me a brake.:wacko:

    P.S. Even the rest of MC was making more than you guys. But you had your contract and job protection. It's almost laughable if it wasn't so pathetic.

    Skeeter,
    That was the childlike hatred that the former O bosses........and, if remember right, the big dog has been politely shown the door and the #2 won't be far behind. They just didn't want to shock you guys by getting rid of both of them at once.

    UPS won't go out of their way to piss off the Teamsters like that. They're not babies.....they're businessmen.

    It is no big surprise it is usually happens after a buy out. I personally want to see all new blood at the top.

    So there's no shock here.:Banane01:

    The way that the Brass acted towards the organization of the former O..........like little children. MC is a perfect example. We'll show em'.......we'll pay those who don't want the Union more just to spite those who do........childlike.

    the problem is that O said they were paying the Motor Cargo union drivers less and you fell for it you are the one that stands around all night for nothing if it was such a good deal we would have gotten out of the union, one thing you do forget is the the real union members do not discuss union business with non union members....If your pay scale and benefits were so good we would not be in the union....
    I am a driver with protect seniority what about you? Had your run cut lately by a gypo, I would stick with the nonunion side if I were you, you love the company so much and great things are coming to those who wait...HA!HA!HA! I've got some swamp land in Nevada I will sell you cheap it has gold on it.

    You know webidiot, your always ribbing us non-union types for being in love with UPS Freight.
    You go,on,and on about how great you have it being a Teamster.

    With the way you treat everyone that isn't a Teamster you sound to me more like a union organizer than someone that works in the Trucking Industry.

    I don't know if you've ever posted who you work for?
    If you did I must of missed it.
    Please post the name of your company again if you dare.

    So Accelerator your saying that webidiot works for the former Motor Cargo?
    That means he's working on that famous paper contract.
    With that in mind,I can't understand why he's always on our case,when he's not a real NMFA Teamster?

    I find that kind of funny myself.
    What do you get with a paper contract?

    All my years as a real NMFA Teamster I never knew what a paper contract was?

    I think it just means you get to pay monthly dues to the IBT to say your a Teamster.
    Does that sound right to you webidiot?
    If not do pray tell me what does it mean to you?
    Thanks for sharing webidiot,my posting friend,and as it turns out if your a MC guy,than your also one of my UPS Freight co-workers.
    Now don't that beat all?

    Yes, AP he is or was a former MC driver. In my book he ought to get on his knees and thank GOD Overnite bought them and UPS bought us.:Banger-Cow:

    Some people think being union will solve all their problems. Ever listen to a couple of union drivers. There are going to be things we are going to like and dislike no matter if you are union or nonunion.

    I say if it comes to a vote people better vote union or nonunion for the right reasons.

    You know Skeeter I'm always thanking God for my job at UPS Freight.
    Back in the days after deregulation of LTL Trucking you never knew who to go to work for?
    The saying here today gone tomorow,thats just how the Teamster union LTL Trucking Industry was.
    Yes sir its a total blessing from God to have been able to be employeed by UPS in any form as they are one of the most secured companies in this whole wide world.
    I'm not in love with my job,but I love God for allowing me to an Apostolic at a UPS company.

    Appearently so. and a white paper contract is a contract in it's infancy, just started ,newborn, although the end result is probably the same as you explained above..
