I am here
I'm another one Peabody, Ma. just north of boston. retired out of the boston terminal (billerica) in 1998. got out a few years before the ax fell. was a good company to work for.
I remember when I first started trucking.I drove for a company called star delivery and transfer out of Morton ill1991.I pulled into a redstar terminal in new York.near the city.a pretty big terminal.I mustve raised a bunch a hell amongst the guys there.because the company I worked for had all white trucks and trailers and one big red star on the trailer.I pulled into the terminal for directions to a customer...I think it was cotter and sons

YRC still screwing things up. retirement is beckening, Miss the Red Star years,
close bunch of guys,
I made a good living on Teamster jobs for 41. Started on a 478 job in Newark NJ in 1969. Went to Red Star in North Bergen in 1977. I had 27 good years there until Hoffa shut us down. I went from N. Bergen to Edison then we opened Newark. Worked there until we opened Lakewood. From there they moved us to S. Brunswick and then back to Newark. After the shutdown I was fortunate to be hired at ABF in Avenel for 6 years until I retired in 2010...........Red Star was a great job when it was privately owned. But after the TNT/USF takeover things went slowly downhill.
