    Volpe is a union operation, I doubt that Saia would be interested.

    I think thier LTL is union and their dedicated drivers are non union. Why would Saia waste time buying them, they only own the terminal in Phoenixville and rent in Harrisburg.

    Saia already interlines with NEMF, a small LTL in CT( and I mean small) and Pitt Ohio(not sure how much anymore with the openings of the terminals in Pa and NJ).

    Are there any updates on this matter? What's the union doing, letting him not pay while letting the guys continue to accrue pension credits to help kill another pension fund? IF Volpe is not making his pension payments he can be shut down over it and the least they should do is freeze the men's pensions where they are instead of letting them continue to mount up. :ranting2: :soapbox:
