    You are wrong. You don't know what you are talking about. God gave you 2 ears and only one moulth so you can listen twice as much as you talk.

    I noticed a little while back the teamsters were outside the gate at the hrs terminal handing out literature about the IBT. I thought that wasn't supposed to happen until a contract was agreed upon in indy!!

    It's pretty pathetic that anyone would want a subpar union. If the APWA was a real player and stood for anything substainial, then UPS would have come to an agreement with them to sit down to talk. It's sad that the APWA leaches off the back of the IBT to obtain there membership. That should make you think about what you may be getting into. There is strength in membership. And the APWA doesn't have any!!

    Its easy to be impressed when someone is trying to sell you something. But where are the facts?

    I see your sold on the apwa. Better start donating now so you might have a chance to get that $7000 per mo pension they don't have yet.

    There just going to use you to get back at the teamsters for revising the pension. Van fell just short of the cutoff.

    Go ahead and join his cause, remember your donation and go ahead and buy a T-shirt while your at it.

    Guys, Like anything else in life. If it sounds too good to be true, It usually is.

    Thats my take on everything I've read from the APWA so far
