I think 2 States
I said I wasn't gonna pay more for healthcare next year
I found this a good read it’s available on Amazon. If you haven’t been in the industry long this will give you some more insight into the subject. I learned some points reading it.
I have a feeling it’s a trend that has no end
Great article.. a little dated but still holds relevance if not more today:
This is another article titled:
Trucking used to be a ticket to the middle class. Now it’s just another low-wage job.
Contract negotiations for Xph are set resume on Dec 20 th I was told.
We just found out that the NLRB has found merit to the cases of 3 drivers that were fired directly after the vote at Xph ( similar to the 3 fired at Xtj ) They are in the process of filling an official complaint against the company .The company will either have to settle or Take it to a Judicial panel.
I could get on board with such an arrangement. Perhaps that way, we might actually be able to get the employee handbook distributed in hard copy, but seriously. I like the idea because it makes HR an objective third party that has no horse in the race.
They will never disribute a hard copy handbook. We were told in one of our meetings the reason we can't photo the PowerPoint is because they can change it at anytime.
Also , if you poke around , most information that management gets nowadays is marked "for internal use only" - very CIA'ish.
They do not want to be bound to rules , agreements or contracts ( only excutive compensation packages and employment contracts)
I wouldn’t get too hung up on the classified memos and not being able to copy PowerPoint it’s just a different type of management style . Xpo is much more protective of any information getting out.
I don’t know if is actually in practice anywhere. I read about it and listen to someone interview that made mention of it. I would think even if someone were “anti union “ they may see this as an alternative. I’m sure companies do not want to give up the freedom they enjoy for this .
So much for that late fall contract that you were talking about, I guess. What's your new target? Need to make sure it's on my calendar.
I don't suppose you're going to tell me what was agreed to in Florida that got this jalopy moving again, are you?
I look forward to reading that decision. Not that I don't trust you, you understand.
I do not know what was agreed upon in Florida to be honest. I know it was holding us up ya know the typical company stahl tactics.
I’m sure you know all about it just not good for you to elaborate. I can’t believe you would not be in the loop anymore. They haven’t posted it to the NLRB site yet . Funny how the gimp doesn’t have anything to say about it .Also looking forward to the one in Florida. I could elaborate more from what I here but time will tell.
All is good
Anyway I’m glad your back . I admire you dedication to the cause despite the business aspect of it. Your really needed.
Who is Esposito?
Someone go let the gimp out
Esposito ? Really. I thought you were going to ask who's motorcycle is this ? It's a chopper, baby. Who's chopper is this ? It's Zed's. Who is Zed ? Zed is dead, baby. Zed is dead.
