"We want to get these companies back to a normal NMFA-style contract and we made clear to the companies that we are not interested in concessions in these negotiations."
Hey Ken! Call Ernie and remind him again that the IBT Concessions Stand is still open for business!
Thanks freight master
We'll see. Just remember Mr. Soehl that nobody, And DAMMIT I mean NOBODY! Is gonna put up with any B.S.! Either from the Company OR the Union!
2019 Restore the Rate or Lock the Gate period , enough of the number's game playing , as YRCW always has money for Bonuses and free stock shares , so they got money of us to then right !!!
I feel better already knowing that Ernie Soehl has put together a negotiating committee made up of "experienced leaders" from across the country. Did I miss something, or did he not mention "experienced rank-and-file people" who actually do this for a living? People who are actually impacted by the outcome of these negotiations? Get the point? I don't need an "experienced leader" (translation a Union official who hasn't worked in this industry for years, and isn't directly affected by the hardships we've endured, but certainly is willing to travel to these negotiating sessions at yours and my expense to negotiate for us). Hmm...do I hear the sound of a "junket in process"?
Thanks for the update.
NO LESS THAN ABF!
3% for 5 years to make up the giveback on top of 30 cents an hour and pension payments going back to full rate in 20% a year incraments over the life of the contract.
NO MEDICAL COPAYS!
Then we can go from there and see how it goes!
Wong has spoken, will YRC listen?
Actually, using Wong’s wage chart on the Holland thread from 2008 when hourly was $22.73, to recover 15 percent of that wage, plus .30 a year raise, it will translate to roughly a $1.00 per hour increase yearly, which would be roughly $27.73 in 5 years.
99 days as of today till 3/31/19. Take into consideration 12/24,25 12/31, 1/1/19 = 95 days.. tick tock Ernie.. i got my burn barrel
Don’t forget, they don’t work weekends.
Are you implying that they work weekdays? LOL
Everyone has their own definition of "work".
I will never vote for a pension increase while it is unsustainable.
The main reason I took a Teamster Union job was for the pension.
I am a realist and although it sickens me I know the Ponzi scheme has come to the end..even with full payments it doesn’t stand a chance for survival without drastic cuts from everyone.
Put that money in our pockets so that we can spend it or put it in our own IRA.Or at least give us the option as to where we want the money to go.
Let's see, if I use my ernie translator, "talk tough then......settle"
