Just speculation on my part , but what makes you think that stupidity has anything to do with it. We have seen how ABF took it in the shorts, don't you think they are going to try to build on it? Look what happened after Patco and the tiered wage progression. The last best contract we got moved that from 2 to 3 years . Then the votes on our give backs. Why wouldn't they come back for more. When the mechanics were talking strike we were told we would be fired if we didn't cross their picket line. IMO that was the end of the line for this union as a bargaining force. Hell. we'll have the texas turncoat here telling us that they'll close the doors AGAIN! When will the national stand up for US? If we had real leadership , not just empty speeches by people that want to line their own pockets with multiple pensions, I would jump to the front of the line to support them. All we have now is the TDU telling us what is wrong but not once coming up with answers. Or a national leadership that is more worried about supporting 12 bus drivers than 25000 teamsters that are loosing pension and wages. Lets not talk about the loss of work rules. If this gets me banned so be it. I am sick and tired of watching this union and members take crap from corp. a holes and banks, that put this economy in the toilet and then come to the workers that built the business for more of our hard earned money !! I dont know my friends if our 200 or so local drivers have to pay 66.45 a month for dues and the drivers that dont sign a card have to tack on another $300 to join that adds up to over $ 175,000 a year to 107 what do we get for this?? Its time to think long and hard about this. YRC is going down the crapper fast so I will post this question AGAIN. WHAT ARE WE GETTING FOR THE 66.45 a month and please dont tell me free health care or a FREE pension,,,,,,,,they are just both LIES someone tell me the truth please !!!!!
