    Nothing is going to happen.All these rumors out there about UPS and etc.is just what they are rumors.If this company gets bought out we won't know anything about til the deal is done.If it does happen whomever buys this thing won't be anyone's savior except their own.The union will cower down and probably allow more cuts and the union bosses would get paid.Business as usual.

    Yes. Please. Stop talking this buyout stuff. We can't even take care of ourselves.
    Think how messed up people's ( brothers - sisters) thinking and actions would be toward each other and a new company. We can't get along now and do it right.
    We act like we get along. But we don't. Each other and company. Look at the loads.
    From the street or a terminal. Ha. It's a joke. Gonna stop NOW!

    Ahhh. But they do! Shareholders are first. They are still making a buck or two. As long as that happens we are A-OK.
    They get the Bennies. We get the pennies! :stirthepot:

    Of course the shareholders are first, they are the OWNERS of any company. Maybe when you stop thinking that companies exist to please the workers you'll be more at peace, just saying.

    I didn't think that. I said the Shareholders are first. We all know that. I didn't say it out of spite. I said it out of truth. Not any anger either.
    I'm not saying management loads trailers. Jeez. Everything is misconstrued! Sorry!
    And I am at peace.

    I set many a skeptic on their proverbial arses, with 'the stuff we had back then.'

    One hit and done.

    Properly harvested and used not abused, would last until the next year.

    My experience in trucking has been most companies run things 'like it is', until they can't. Then the gates are locked...

    Freight lanes?Deregulation took care of the old lane rights.
    After the Government deregulated trucking.
    Anybody with a license could buy,or lease a tractor hook to a trailer,& haul freight wherever they wanted.
