    Yeah what he said! Right on the money! It's funny I seem to remember hearing that very same thing months ago at an NCT morning meeting! (The Union put all those companies out of business)

    Ok I did a little homework just to make you happy. So as not to bore people too much I only quoted the 1st 3 companies on your list. As you can see they were all in deep financial trouble while other unionized trucking companies were making record profits.

    Wasn't PIE part of the Ryder PIE Helms Byrns consolidation fiasco? I wonder if buying up the competition with borrowed money helped put them too deeply in debt?

    Didn't CF finance the Conway start up with profits from the unionized Consolidated Freightways?

    Didn't Maislin shut down because of it losing money after the purchase of Gateway?

    Didn't Yellow Corp buy, rape and sell off Preston?

    Didn't TNT shutdown Pilot around the same time it purchased the highly profitable unionized Holland and Red Star?

    I could go on and on but you get the point. I can't find any information on where the Teamsters were the cause of a trucking company going bankrupt. So I'm calling BS to your thread.

    Thanks guys, but I have 1 more thing to add. This Mike1209 just joined TB yesterday and the 1st thing he does is start a thread attacking the Teamsters. Note that he didn't provide a link to support his list of closed trucking companies. I'll bet that is because nowhere on that link will it say the Teamsters caused those closures...... His thread and posts are only his biased opinions and lack any facts.

    Just goes to show you the mentality of DarkMinnow. He actually thought WE were gonna lower ourselves to his level by talking about what is to come. Hey minnow boy this breakfast wasn't about the union it was about the company. What part of that don't you get. Wait.... you weren't there!!!! The impression I got was, once again, the company screwed the customers by not providing a service. Lost customers because of their inadequacies. It has nothing to do with the union breathing down their necks. Get with the program you spineless, excuse for a man!!!!!

    I take great offense by the comments made from the both of you. I can speak not only for myself but most of the union supporters here when I say the facts stated by us are backed up with research and a paper trail of history. A 2 year old doesn't have a clue what the word " fact" let alone " History" means. I challenge the both of you to prove my posts to be nothing more than a 2 year old's rendition of not getting his way. I would never poison the facts with made up antics and self serving words of wisdom. I think " I HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD " with this one.

    I might have agreed with you on his first sentence if he hadn't titled this thread UNION BS. It appears to me that his only purpose was to attack the Teamsters. But since he couldn't provide any facts to back up his claim he had to use a bunch of BS lies in order to make his point.

    Hey Darksky twice you've avoided my questions. What up with that? I missed the meeting and want you to fill me in on both the company information given along with what occurred regarding the Union! I would appreciate your input! Thanks in advance.

    Could care less about your perspective.I was referring to the constant barrage of children playground name calling.If you do no participate in this,my apologies..If you do,I think the term,"if the shoe fits....." applies..
