    Overnite, this thread was speaking of a contract that a couple of MC terminals had that was union, so this thread did go in the wrong direction.

    Not all of MC did have a contract, and those that did "O" never negotiated with, so therefore take it or leave it. Which is the same that happened with the point system in the north when UPSF thought it good to take away points from the road drivers stating they were making to much money.

    Considering your situation you probably will loose, but if a driver is getting paid at full rate for 1 hr. total of drop, hook, and refuel time, as opposed to "O" giving them now a .7, I would say they did loose, not getting paid for all of wait time as opposed to what they were earning prior to edge, is also a loss.



    Now we are being told a doozie, all drivers now, must come into the terminal when the wether is bad, and the TM and only the TM will determin wether operations will be closed for the day due to weather, so if there is a rageing blizzard outside and the weather man predicts 2' of snow in 2 hours, road drivers and city alike must go to the terminal and the TM will determin wether we run or not. If we call in we get written up.

    But god forbid if we get caught in a freezing ice storm and have an accident, even though we may have predicted such after being told to go anyway. 3 of them and you are out of a job.

    The last time someone asked for a big amen. Hillbilly frog responded with a big green amen. I was hoping he would do the same when I asked for one. He must be taking a nap! I would be too, if I had the spare time that he does these days. Elvis out.....

    You finally agree with one of my posts????? What do you think fellas and darkstar? Do we sense a chink in the armor? Are you turning towards the demonic dark side? Just busting your balls. We are all going to be brothers whether we agree on certain issues or not. You know the old saying. Opinions are like onion rings. Some go down good. And some give you heartburn. Did I really just post that? Elvis out and lubing my rusty humor.....:1036316054:

    If us in the UPS freight sub forum could make it through 4 pages of on topic posts, the world would end.

    And a sticker , and a pin. You know a year ago I said " BRING ON THE HORSES WHERE ARE THE HORSES":horse::bananalama::bananalama:

    I feel they are here and I am a bit concearned about being run over. At this rate we will be organized company wide in about a few more months, so let's forget about the 3 year card check shall we.
