    There are more contractors and Owner operators running than company drivers. Needs atleast 180 doors imo.

    If they do what they should do in2018 Volvo and freight liner will call all of there factory workers back because ups freight will have to order double the tractors than what we have now

    The brotherhood will never put an end to or slow down the contractors. They suckered many into taking pension cuts on the last contract. I was at the hall in Taylors SC and watched numerous Gaffney drivers voting yes only 2 no votes. We have no:cuss: neither does the union.

    There are far more senior drivers that had nothing to loose and more to gain with the $105 added to the pension each year with the 30 year cap removed. It was a brilliant move by company and union. All you can hope for is by next contract there will be more of guys like you voting on the contract...

    I don't know we don't have anybody to challenge him. Local level elections came and gone nobody ran against him.
