    This is just sad.
    Used to be a premium job and people waiting in line.
    Now it's a scramble to hire ANYONE.
    Desperation.
    How times have changed.

    Nothing will come of it. Obviously if someone brings charges the IBT will find against them and there is nowhere to go to appeal their decision. I do hope that they make the attempt though, it will show more people what the IBT is all about.

    "Unprecedented wage differential within company"??? Is this a joke? Wage differential came about in the 1980's when "wage progression" was first implemented in a NMFA. At one time everyone made the same rate, first day on the job or 30 year man, casual or long time seniority. Now people are wetting their pants over a slight change for the better for some workers? Give me a break.

    It already goes on like Chicago Dudes are at Higher pay than anybody else and Hoffa makes more money than the Circus Clowns doing same job and Nyhan at CSPF is at Full Pay & pension for running it in the ground ! It's all a game we can't win !

    Technically a newbie in lets say Akron Ohio can quit . And apply in Columbus and make more money?? This because Akron is not one of the terminals that will get a boost in pay and Columbus is on the list of pay boost. You have no seniority so you might as well get 5 more dollars per hour.

    Yeah! It doesn't make sense when dock at 211 has unlimited overtime, some guys even working double shifts! They can't get casual dock workers to work for McDonalds wages and be on call to boot!
