    sysco albany ny driver here. are you guys going to be union? if so, the abc has to be voluntary. i know rocky hill and hallsmith aren't, but metro ny and we are. ypu guys have the opportunity to make a big time hourly rate. don't let these squirrels tell you differently.

    They are offering 21.50hr. Or the ABC but they are not telling us the specifics they say they are still working on it and they are opening on July 30th i think they are trying to jerk us cost of living too high here for that

    21.50 IS BS FOR LONG ISLAND!!!! we are a dollar higher for our hourly rate, and im sure our cost of living is less. as far as specifics, i don't know until they tell you how much per case, mile, etc. the one thing somebody has to ask is will you get paid the better of the two-- hourly or abc. in other words, you have to have a safety net for your pay. also, ny state is considered an overtime state, so im 99.9% sure you will get paid the better of the two, but someone needs to look into it. did you ever talk to the jersey city guys when you were with dicarlos?
