Then we both know they make a lot of promises they can't keep.
Just like one of then told me "You will get the same contract and wage that UPS freight got"
We see how well that's working out with the union barns.
I'd think one's job effects ones immediate sphere.
we can Google it all day here one from back in 2005 written in the New York Times
The union never promised anything that couldn't be done.
Also i like to think I'm smart enough to know that when they tell me the first contract is a bitch. I wouldn't expect to get a contract like the UPS or any other Union shop that has been around for Year's and have worked on having contract and standard.
But having a first contract is the first step in a long road.
So all this multibillion dollar companies can't pay a decent wage or Well paid benefits. But they can do this.?
Time past, a CEO’s pay was set on a scale with others in the same organization. This was dubbed “internal equity.” But in the 1980s, a consultant named Milton Rock sold the idea of “external equity.” Now, as if CEOs belong to a tribe of superhumans, they are paid on a scale with only their “peer CEOs.”
That's just in case you missed it on the link i posted...
The more unqualified, inexperienced & incompetent managers put in place, the harder to keep good employees. A GOOD employee won't tolerate non managing managers. Their goddamn job is to manage. Follow your own companies rules. You want to piss me off? Bend over backwards for whiny, POS employees.
Now i totally agree with you.
I got this problem at the shop. I just had a long talk with the R Managera bout all the Bollshit going on in the shop. Will see what come's of it.
Mr Fly and Mr. Stand I never doubted that you were in the union,I myself have been since "76 , I just found it hard to belive something like that was in a contract and I have seen some wimpy contracts, Maybe because I have always been under national contract I based my comments on. You sir are correct that is BS if that is the waay it was written and approved, somebody just looking out for themselves and to heck with new guys that just is not right. As i have no dog in this fight I hope for the best for you all and good luck Now I'll go back to just reading and everybody stay safe
This is why you NEVER lease a truck from a company, you go buy it off a dealer lot with your own financing. In my opinion if you're dumb enough to sign an agreement on a lease that heavily favors the company you get what you get.
One would think... I don't understand why anyone wouldn't take the 5 seconds to mark the ballot and put it back in the postage paid envelope. Hell if you had a pen in your pocket you could do it at the mailbox and save a trip back to the curb.
When the union has talked to me or my coworkers we're told they can fix all the problems. It doesn't matter what the problem is, the union says they can fix it. We all know they're lying for their own benefit knowing they can't keep the promises.
It's like you and Sucker are reading the same book when it comes to avoiding my questions.......
I get it. You don't like greedy corporations. So how will inviting the union, a greedy corporation that wants to get rich on my back, help me? How is dealing with two greedy corporations, instead of one, better?
These guys are not the "I own this son of a bitch" crowd, for the most part they are poorly educated immigrants that were sold a bill of goods by a predatory company. I don't know if it was XPO's business model or if they bought it that way.
There were several companies that did this.
