    I don't think so at all. This is a good thread. I haven't read anything outrageous yet. Everyone is having a discussion that needs to be had. Organizing is a FACT and not discusssing that fact won't make it go away. No trolling going on as far as I can read and my reading comprehension is excellent.

    Wanted to bump this again. I asked you earlier to ask XAU drivers why they did what they did? What were the issues that pushed them to do this?

    From the way it sounds to me it's the uncertainty of xpo they see it as more long boxes crappier insurance and pay reduction along with stealing vacation again

    But none of that has happend yet? There are certain issues at my place that are starting to get the natives restless. Lack of respect for seniority, favoritism, management doing whatever suits them for the day etc. Were there any local issues?

    Almost all of the things that people are complaining about now are things that have been brought up in the past ( in some version ) - The more things change , the more they remain the same.

    Very few terminals don't have some sort of management issues. They must feel like their lined up in front of neegan, waiting to see who lucille claims next.

    How long will we have to wait to see who lives and who dies?

    I sure hope everything stays about the same or better for the next couple of decades. I'm considering buying a house sometime in the early part of next year. I don't need all this while purchasing a house.

    Well, I don't know. I appreciate the advice. It's hard to know what to do really.

    I'm not worried about the political outcome as much as I am about the job opportunities and outlook. I'm not ready to put life on hold for XPO but you may be right. We'll be buying within our means certainly and at my base pay on 40 hours.

    I guess we'll see what happens.. It will be interesting to see whether XPO changes the bids (ahem! job selections) here in the next couple months.

    If they won't keep outsiders off the thread, how will we be able to speak to anything but the outside topics they bring into the thread with them ?

    They don't belong here. And have clearly hijacked another thread. They are free to speak down to us and talk at length about our job and work environment. But if we should speak to them at all it's immediately a direct personal attack and they are terribly offended.

    They will attempt to edit posts after responses and claim rules violations. They trash the thread with their baiting comments and then all that results is that they silence the XPO employees from speaking. Nothing but outsiders posting complimentary comments to other outsiders posts. They have there own thread for that. What is the point of letting outsiders commandeer a thread meant to be exclusively for XPO employees to speak openly amongst themselves ?

    As has been mentioned repeatedly, management is scared. They have had a lot of changes to deal with and more probably to come. And while I am sure that there are still problems at some terminals. I am guessing most of the union push has to do with the global entity XPO Logistics and not local management. This is a big picture movement. Not some petty fluff up.

    Side topic, but I have to. In the comic, it's the Asian guy who dies. But they have creative freedom and have slightly strayed from the previous story line when it made for better cinema.
