Board of directors when they hear people should be paid the same.
I thought it was from when they heard the XWC union vote
The better benefits statement is a matter of opinion, I feel that my insurance among other things is better than what I had at Con-Job. Just saying.
Driver. Stay put. FedEx is growing. There are some growing pains but it's going to be better long term. YRC. What more can anyone say ? Just don't, man. XPO. The are flipping for profit. This thing is going to be cut and gutted and sold off. You really wanna live through that ?
Always good to be looking. I would guess you have good reason to. No job is perfect. But of those three. You are best where you are.
I agree. Looking ahead based on the last 10 years of LTL, you are working for the best company in the LTL business. Driving a truck is way too mobile, scattered & most important has no special nitch that makes for forming a strong union. Heavy crane operators have a strong union. They don't have to travel, docking berth for large ships are limited, ships wait in the harbor to unload, the skill set to work the docks takes a lot more time & training than 6 weeks @ JB Hunt's driving school. Many reasons why some industries have lasted with union workers & will continue to do so. Dragging general freight down the highway is not one of them. Trucking is like a nomadic tribe, constantly moving. Even harder is finding enough drivers to assemble in one place to organize. And then there is the most important & last reason why organizing a union amongst truckers will always fail. Where does the sun rise? East or West?
So true !!
