Red. you would make a great Shop Steward.........just sayin
Naw...I'm a realist and I believe in self responsibility, not blaming others for one's actions!!
Just make dammed sure you have a Board Certified Cardiologist working @ the ER when they haul you in. It also might be wise to have the Paramedics parked outside the the building you are eating in during your myocardial infarction. Minutes count. von.
Yes, I have. The only to roll. Besides, if you stir the 2 items, your guests would never know while raving about the flavor. von.
Never heard of Poutine, sounds like something I'd give a try, arteries don't bother me, you only die once!
How do you figure??
It is still in need of organizing whether it be the union or self organized. It is a hostile environment in many respects.
Hostile is a strong word IMO...I'd prefer to see self organized. At centers were elections resulted in no votes they've created focus groups made up of drivers for drivers...they meet and discuss issues that drivers are having and they take those issues to local and regional management. From what I've heard it's turned out positive results on the local level which is usually where most of the problems are.
I've always found that talking to people, instead of griping behind the scenes, works wonders. Anytime I've ever taken issue with something, I've taken it to the person capable of doing something about it. And most of the time, it yields positive results.
I support the union because we, as drivers, need to be stronger than the big companies which would seek to control us. And the Teamsters are, if nothing else, an excellent tool to keep the balance of power shifted our way. And for that, the union must remain alive.
But I have never needed the support of a union because I've never been afraid to have a conversation. People in management tend to listen surprisingly well if you don't sound like a lunatic or an idiot when you explain your issue to them. Bonus points for articulating it in a way that leaves them convinced it was their idea to make a change. It's truly amazing what a few words with the right person can accomplish.
The terms "favratism and hostility" are still relevant at certain centers. Simply because you don't experience them in your world do not make it so at others. While I agree the threat of the Union has provided positive results at many centers, I see first hand the ineptness and aforementioned practices on nearly a daily basis in my neck of the woods and I assure you that they could give a rats ass about my opinions. And the so called "Road Driver advisor" is a gd joke and a waste of financial resources
These things happen every day in some centers, I happen to work in one of them/
You have your finger on the pulse of CLT
That's not where you put your finger to find a pulse.
why do you have to bring mgmt into it? LMAO
Ouch that one hurt seems plastic hammer is reluctant to bet for some reason.
We are going to show you how we do it on North Carolina. Lmao
This should be pretty cool
Oh, I agree 100% but that's also why I said these focus groups help more on the local level. A lot of times the CCM is shielded from what's really going on at certain centers and sometimes it's the CCM that is the problem. Either way, until your issues are brought to the forefront they'll never be dealt with. What I've found over time is that more guys would rather complain in hopes of someone else taking the reins and solving the issues instead of dealing with them themselves. Why guys won't speak up is beyond me!! Our company has an open door policy as well as a chain of command...if one takes the time to walk through the door and then climb the ladder should they not get the results they desire, I think they'll find there's someone who will want to help resolve your issues.
NOTE: This post wasn't directed toward you personally Lube but rather to people in general since we all know someone that fits this description.
That doesn't make a shop steward...
