    I think Plunger Joe should post more of his clip art. I liked the result of that.

    Saw you a-marchin' with Robert E. Lee
    You held your head a-high, tryin' to win the victory
    You fought for your folks but you didn't die in vain
    Even though you lost, they speak highly of your name

    'Cause you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way, Johnny Reb

    I heard your teeth chatter from the cold outside
    Saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side
    I saw the young boys as they begin to fall
    You had tears in your eyes, 'cause you couldn't help at all

    But you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way, Johnny Reb

    I saw, General Lee, raise the sabre in his hand
    Heard the cannon's roar as you made your last stand
    You marched in the battle with the gray and the red
    When the cannon's smoke cleared, took days to count the dead

    'Cause you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way, Johnny Reb

    Joey

    Joey Joey took a stone

    And knocked

    Down

    The

    Sun!

    And Whoosh! It swizzled

    Down so hard.

    And bloomp! It bounced

    In his backyard.

    And glunk! It landed

    On his toe!

    And the world was dark,

    And the corn wouldn’t grow!

    And the wind wouldn’t blow!

    And the *bleep* wouldn’t crow!

    And it always was Night,

    Night,

    Night.

    All because

    Of a stone

    And Joe.

    Guys you were getting SO close earlier in this feed. Then you got away from the subject and went off in left field.

    Let us get back on track;

    First: 401K's sounds good. However ask some of the guys who came from CAROLINA (a trucking company ABF bought out in the late 90's) about the 401K's they had with CAROLINA after they became ABF.

    Second: Call and talk with Central States. It is not a matter of if the pension plan goes bankrupt. It is a reality that it will Go bankrupt, soon. Central States will tell you that ABF does not have the money to buy out of the central states fund even if they were to sell off the entire company and use all that money to buy out of the pension plan.

    Third: Judy said it herself in a conference call with the stock holders (i think it was a little over a year or two ago). The question was asked,"Are you still planning to get out of the pension plan?" Her answer was, "No, We think that our employees deserve a good retirement & besides we have already given them that chance & through a vote they showed us that was important to them. They did not want to give that up." Now she was referring to when Bob Davison, was CEO & tried to force that issue down our throats. But the bottom line is that Judy already knew that the figure had jumped from the original figure and that ABC/ABF could no longer buy it's way out of the pension plan.

    Fourth: However, with this new Hybrid plan. Like the one that UPS used to buy out of the eastern pension plan. ABF could not only afford it, it would also get THEM (ABF) out from under the liability costs they would encure when the plan does go bankrupt.

    Let's not start rumors. Anyone out there an ex-CAROLINA employee who was dove-tailed into ABF after the ABF buyout? The question is, "What were the changes that took place with your 401K account when ABF dove-tailed you in with ABF?

    Well I was told by one that he got monthly statements while with Carolina. But that all stopped when ABF took over the 401K's. He could not find out his balances, how it was being invested, He was just told that when he filed his papers he would get his money.

    rc ABF could not get out of the plan because the Teamsters said all or nothing. Abf wanted to make a large downpayment and pay off the rest over years. This was not a no vote ABF could not afford it then as they can't now.

    It's Official!

    Charges have been filed with the NLRB against the union and ABF from an ABF Teamster out of Cleveland Ohio in violation of the 2008-2013 NMFA in reference to the pension contributions and the union lack of enforcement of the matter and in reference of the defeated 2010 proposed wage cut agreement!

    Imagine that...No Means No!!!!!

    If I were a lawyer for the NLRB I would suggest the ABF teamster out of Cleveland Ohio take this violation to the attention of the IBT. This is an easy fix. The IBT authorizes a strike for non-payment..no vote required..Make it happen brother!!

    Here you go...babbling on again without even knowing what you speak of!!! Did you even comprehend what was posted? Who do you think had to agree and authorize the non payment Joe? What's this BS rhetoric of yours about the IBT authorizing a strike for non-payment? You just love making a complete fool of yourself...don't you Joe?

    And tell me...just name one ABF Teamster or any Teamster for that matter that would even consider taking advice from you??????​
