If his mouth moves, he’s lying!!
It’s all a show where in the end he’s the only real beneficiary. People are slowly but surly seeing the truth.
No people have been saying that since day one. This guy is a flipper. And he is gonna get his money and bail. Slash and cash. Cut and gut. People been saying this the whole time.
No, he’s lying!
According to the Teamsters, the two biggest pushers at XAU got themselves "released to the industry". And they spent all that time making videos, chanting, holding banners and crashing conventions in California, posing for propaganda photos, and leading marches through their terminal. Such a shame. All those distractions must make it very hard to remember that XPO is still your boss and you still have to follow their rules.
Not going to be very encouraging to those that believe the union has any real power, for sure.
Just waiting to see how this plays out.
Don’t get overzealous in your gloating that story is far from over....
The word on the street and on TB there has been strike votes at ABF. Anyone else hear anything about this? If they do strike I see use getting very busy.
I’ve seen no such thing yet, nor have I heard of a strike vote coming down the pipeline.
The ABF rank and file have voted to authorize a strike, NOT to be confused with going on strike.
I haven’t seen anything in my mailbox yet regarding either issue.
Not sure where you are out of but some locals have voted
Oh I got that off of the ABF thread on TB. All kinds of strike talk on there and at the Holland thread too
Make sure you click on the proposal link in the article too
Now that they voted on it and if it comes down too it, the million dollar question is.... Will they
Fake news ;)
Contract isn't even close to being presented to the membership yet, kinda hard to strike on something you have nothing to strike over yet. And they won't strike on the first proposals any way's. They can vote it down and send them back to the tables again for something better, I know it took 3 time for us in carhaul, stop licking your chops over something that has even come close to happening yer
Then why even have s strike vote? Are they trying to scare the company? Most people are living paycheck to paycheck and couldn't even make it two weeks. Every company knows this so going on strike is no real big threat anymore.
Both sides in this case are just trying to set a stance going into it. I don’t know enough to speculate the chances of a strike.
