    Probably the most unknown national movement, but whatever. You have 51 different sets of state and federal laws, so no we’re no where even close to the same. Will you admit that the terminals that voted and declined to unionize had that right and made the right decision for them?

    In 1976 there were 2 million Teamsters members. The population has increased and there’s only 1.2 million members at last count.

    You make a fair argument. You must remember the teamster did this all to themselves. The teamster had no interest in any of these non-union companies back in the day. They said they were no threat until union company after union company closed it doors. I remember I was told by a Teamster that CF was to big to fail. I sure that was one hell of a surprise on that Tuesday morning after labor day when they showed up to locked gates. I know because my non-union company was buried in freight for about a month. Day after day with the news of failing pension funds, retiree's have there retirement pay cut, and corruption within the ranks have stain any reputation the Teamster's had. There are lot of former union driver that got the shaft from the union working at ltl carries like this one, and want nothing to do with the teamster.

    Normal operation on Friday including picking up freight, then a 3 day holiday weekend, then locked gates on Tuesday. How was it dismantling? I sure there were a lot of customers that wish they would have dismantled because there freight was locked up in there system for weeks if not months.
    I just quoted what a Teamster told me back in the days and I never forgot it

    It happened.These companies only care about profits not people or customers.If they did care about you. You have the pension that they took away from you guys and you would be making more money than ups freight.

    CCX took the good freight and left the garbage, CF paid CCX fuel bills for over a year, all billing was integrated.

    In your theory then why isn't YRC and ABF making more then UPS?
    Also never had a pension that was taken from me in the first place.
