from oakh.com Dear Valued Customer, We are happy to report that the Oak Harbor team is back fully serving our customers. Here are some new items to report to you: Sure, whats left of them, wouldn't take all that much capacity to service %18 of your former base. The lack of freight is evident by the piles of empty trailers some even sitting in off site rented yards. * We have had over seventy five (75) represented people who have returned to our team. Wow, 12.5 percent or 75 out of 600 the majority of whom are office personnel with close family ties to supervisors/owners * We reopened our Moses Lake Terminal on Monday. * We fully are rolled out in our system so we are 100% operational. You fully rolled out your system? Is it some kind of rug or something? * We continue to grow our business back in all of our districts throughout the system. Translation, we are finally able to make pickups, previously we were so understaffed we were unable to accommodate. * No new talks are scheduled. * We are in the midst of hiring permanent replacements. Watch you local news outlet or youtube to see them in action! * We are having some peaceful ambulatory picketing following some of our trucks. We live in free America and they have that right. You as a customer have rights too, so there are several ways to manage this. Please see attached document, if you have further questions please call your account manager on this. * Some of our customers are taking a wait and see attitude. We can understand that. If it is a service concern we want to win your trust back. We would like to get your support and earn your trust back. Translation: Where did all out freight go? We though everyone would like to ship with a company throws loyal employees with years of service out on the street, then hires people with records of theft to replace them. On behalf of Ed and myself, we are indeed thankful in your trust in having our team handle your freight. We will continue to communicate to you as new developments happen. We want to assure you that our plan is to celebrate our 100th Anniversary in 2016 and that you are a key part of that plan. We appreciate your business and look forward to continue providing you with our premier service. Sincerely, David Vander Pol Translation: We fortunately have been squandering away a huge sum of money, so we will be able to operate without profit for quite some time. We would like to thank you for your trust, as felons with considerable criminal records pilfer through your freight, and drivers with DUI convictions constantly endanger your families livelihoods on the street. Our 100th anniversary if it ever occurs will be cloaked, in the pain and suffering of the hundreds of people who dedicated their lives to growing this business, that we so arrogantly dismissed. May god bless us in our constant struggle to take advantage of the working class, we have so much money it doesn't really matter how this all ends and we didn't gain it from the hard work of these saps on the street, or their willingness to help save this company at a time when it was struggling.
