    Hey, no problem...but I think we need to re-negotiate the contract.
    That quality post was worth more than two cents.:hysterical:

    I'd join the AARP, AAA, AT&T, AA, ATA, ATF or any of the other A's before I would waste my time joining APWA. What a joke!! UPS invited the IBT to sit down to the talks and not some fly by night so called union.

    I don't hate anyone. I can get fired up like the next guy. But if I am wrong I'll be the first to admit it. So just let me say I'm sorry now and we can go on:smillie_flag:

    One of my co-workers put copies of a newspaper artical from the Charelston Gazit.
    It was about UPS,and the Teamsters working out a contract with UPS Freight in INDY.
    I scaned it,most of it was about whats already been posted on these boards since when they first voted to be organized.
    But the end said the Teamsters hoped to have the contract completed by early 2007.
    So according to this news paper,maybe we will see whats going on after the first of the year?

    I'm not computer savy to be able to posts links to news stories.
    But I'll see if I can find this artical about the negociations.
    It was only written a few days ago.

    We have a table in our drivers room that when any of us has some news we leave in on this table for all to see when they get a chance.

    Only thing is my TM is a clean freak.
    Sometimes stuff is on the table for up to a week,or more,but other times it gets tossed out before everyone gets to see it.

    I looked for this story today,but it was gone.
    So I'll see if I can get the guy that brought it in to get another copy.
    Than I can post more details.

    APO why did you get out? Job change? Or the company shut down? Getting a withdrawal card was a real real good thing to do.

    I worked for Hall's Motor Transit,from 7/66,till they closed their doors 3/86.
    Than I worked day,and evening shifts at 10 local Teamster companies.
    I almost got on the fultime clock at Consolidated Freightways.
    But popped a low phone line,and that was the end of that.
    I called the local union for help,they didn't want to hear anything I had to say.

    I've posted a lot of this before.

    It was very hard for me competing with younger drivers.
    So when I couldn't get any help from my local,union rep.'s.

    I gave up,and hired on with Overnite.

    Had I got on with CF,I'd of had 30 years union credit in 1997.
    But thats life.

    God only knows why things go the way they do.
    When I make Heaven my home,the Bible states I'll know all things.
    It won't matter than,but I'm sure it will be interesting,to see why things got worked out for my own good.
