This is the truth straight from the horses mouth so to speak, a really good teamster friend of mine. Now please refrain from personal baby insults and that sorta crap. If you have nothing constructive to add to the convo then please find another thread to bash in. I bring the truth about what is going on in the IBT and how it will hurt the NCT drivers. There is a mandate out to all local unions to organize as many trucking comp they can ASAP. Why might you ask me ? The answer is simple and the math is simple. YRC employs over 26000 union members to the tune of $ 1,560,000 a month to the IBT give or take a few hounded thousand. If YRC goes belly up pretty much so do the teamsters. You might say WOW but how does that affect me at NCT. Well let's look at that the 220 drivers will be paying over 15000 a month & over 175,000 a year to the IBT to help offset the loss of over 1.5 million dollars. Right now the IBT pension is almost broke the Central Stated Pension is pretty much broke so what is a business to do when it loses it's biggest customer and trust me the IBT is a business just like NCT is. The IBT must go out and secure NEW customers just like any other business does. But here is the kicker. Your money will be funding a bankrupt pension plan for other members who have long ago retired, pretty much throwing bad money after bad money. Men you have to ask yourself and your families is this worth my future ??? What is my 66.45 a month really going to get me FREE HEALTHCARE ( lie ) and a free pension from a bankrupt pension plan? ALL NCT DRIVERS ITS TIME TO WAKE UP MAN UP AND VOTE NO. BY VOTING NO TO THE TEAMSTERS YOU ARE VOTING YES TO FEEDING YOUR FAMILY AND KEEPING YOUR CHOICE IN LIFE ,,,, AND NOT LETTING A THIRD PARTY CHOOSE FOR YOU.
