    Agent... Associate... Same gosh darn thing. I know they are not the ones who pass out cards. They are the that are responsable for the number of card carriers they have. They are the ones who tell the organizers what to do.

    And as far as the "freethinker" thing. Nothing that I have said was told to me by upper managment to say. I thought of it all on my own.

    Who am I... I can tell you this much, because if I tell you who exactly I am... then why do we use cool screen names. I am a line driver who drives the highways and byways of this great United States and I DO NOT WANT TO BE IN MANAGEMENT... WHy... Because I make more money then all of the managers by driving with out the head aches. And I have never implied anything.:1036316054:

    :chairshot:Over here at Uncle Stan's Company we've been rounding up every empty we can locate. So has Portland. You can bet O.D. and the other regionals are doing the same. I'm sure there's some interesting chats between the cousins going on. I've been around since these Companies were Master Freight. Both have been good union carriers over the years. They will stay that way or they will die that way. The choice is up to these hard headed Dutchmen. Don't compromise your principals or values. Take your stand. We're watching very closely over here at the "white truck company".

    I respect your opinon and you have all the right to voice it.

    Now tell us what you did to reign in the out of control BA's.

    BA's and congressmen are both like a baby's diaper, and I am sure you know the rest of the quote.

    We have a guy moving empties to Eugene [non-union] to day, he wondered why.:biglaugh:

    I was always under the impression that they are not on speaking terms. Or is it only when it comes to fight the evil union?

    Thanks. You just keep your hands off of the customers. Just tell them that it is a temporary thing.

    When is your contract up?
    Was interesting on your post the other day on which terminals is union/non-union.

    Sadly with the recent changes the King George and his cronies has made in the labor laws it is going to be a long haul for all of us. The NLRB has just become another puppet of this administration.

    VANDER POL, EDWARD MR. (OAK HARBOR FREIGHT/OWNER), (Zip code: 98001) $2000 to BUSH-CHENEY '04 (PRIMARY) INC. on 08/13/

    VANDERPOL, DAVID A MR. (OAK HARBOR FRIEGHT LINES/MANAGER), (Zip code: 98001) $2000 to BUSH-CHENEY '04 (PRIMARY) INC. on 11/18/03
    VANDERPOL, LINDA L MRS. (HOMEMAKER), (Zip code: 98001) $2000 to BUSH-CHENEY '04 (PRIMARY) INC. on 12/19/03

    VANDER POL, EDWARD MR. (OAK HARBOR FREIGHT/OWNER), (Zip code: 98001) $1000 to BUSH-CHENEY '04 COMPLIANCE COMMITTEE INC. on 08/24/04

    But in 2005, Washington lawmakers approved a new state estate tax. While its supporters claim the state death tax targets only “the rich,” people like Ed and Dave VanderPol will find themselves and Oak Harbor Freight in its cross hairs.

    :BS:“Money is overrated. This is about integrity, customer service and wonderful employees,” says Ed, who was honored as the 2004 Alumnus of the Year during Homecoming in January. “God expects us to help others and blesses us to be able to do so.”

    A combination of successful business practices, good hearts and helping hands has grown Oak Harbor into a transportation company that serves more Northwest points than any other single carrier. Whenever a snowstorm shuts down the mountain passes, businesses in Eastern Washington know they can count on Oak Harbor to go a day out of the way by first driving south to Portland, then turning east to bypass the Cascade Range before turning north again to finally deliver the goods.

    lets go through your pvt records even if they are public record. man you are really sad if you need to stock VanderPol's on the computer.

    They give a lot to help the poor, they give over a million pounds of food to the food banks each year they carry free of charge medical supplies for the poor. And several other great things. Tell us what do you give? Nothing...You go on the computer to stock. Not to bright.

    The proper response would to use the powerful tool that is provided to the employees. asktheboss@oakh.com

    But in all fairness there is always lawsuits that businesses have to put up with and I doubt if this one is any big thing. I could make a wild guess but I don't want to get accused of "stocking Oakh by computer."

    Guys, strike is the last option, and probably wont happen. You need to stay focused on the goal. Staying focused on the improvement of working conditions and personal pride, benefits, and whatever all of the issues are.

    We are all rooting for you, and on your side.:1036316054:

    I know that we move lots of things for donation and I am proud of the fact that we do. Could you clarify "they give over a million pounds of food?" Don't we just provide the freight?
