    My entire local got the shaft. The hall about went bankrupt fighting endless grievances before the gates were closed and then when the gates were closed all hell broke loose. When we wanted to strike at Coca Cola we were told we couldn't, we can't afford it. The scope of how bad that situation hurt the union and it's members went well beyond just those that lost their jobs. And many of those old timers from CF refused to work. Set in their ways. When offered other employment they turned their noses up at it. A few tried working with us at Coke but they didn't last. It required effort and all they wanted to do was stand around and tell the same exact story, over and over, all day long.

    You have a very ignorant view on a lot of things. Many of us lived through those tough times. Did not just hear about them or read about them. Lived them.

    So you held a fund raiser bar-b-que and had a 50/50 raffle to help ease their pain and loss ? I'm sure that came in handy. ( sarcasm )

    Just answer the damn question. Do grown men that vote no have the right to vote no ?

    There is a movement alright. Union membership is at an all time low. Are you sure that you are helping to move things in the right direction with all of this ? You seem to be pushing people away. Just an observation. I thought it was the role of management to divide and conquer.

    Where do you work?

    FYI, that’s a question. I’m hoping it’s not to challenging to provide an answer.

    Not true. 30yearman said the Teamsters don’t want me. Attitudes like that can’t help your cause.

    Roadboss, I think your full of :shit:. I don’t even think your a driver. Your a union schill. You won’t answer where you work, won’t answer if the barns that voted no have that right. I think your just a windbag blowing hot air. If you won’t answer these questions in open forum, don’t post here anymore.

    Maybe you need to reread what I posted. I asked why ABF and YRC don't make more then UPS. Master freight has nothing to do with it.

    now if you going to quote me make sure you use the whole statement. This is what I said "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."
    I never said the union screwed CF drivers, but I sure some did. I said there are many former teamster working at non-union LTL companies that want nothing to do with the union.

    Yes we know more and see more. Failing Pension, Falling membership, and union jobs shops closing and jobs going overseas. I believe I would have better luck with putting money under my mattress then into a union pension fund.

    What a matter??? Were not asking you your home address or you home barn. We just ask what company do you supposedly driver for. Is that so hard
