before voting, ask yourself why you came to new penn. i came here for the pay and benefits and job security of a union job. think of the sacrifice and hard work it took to get this job, what you were put thru. most drivers dont even start at new penn with their reputation for how hard we are expected to work. i did not do all that hard work for all the cuts and maybe 25% of the pension. take a stand against these people that want to take away your hard earned reward for making new penn the great job it was. if they close us for having pride, we will find another company who can afford to reward its employees for hard work. hopefully new penn will stay in business, but a no vote is in order to show them we want to be paid for hard work. if new penn can no longer afford to compensate hard work with good pay and benefits, i' ll have to go somewhere else, but first i'll try to keep our our pension at 100 percent with a no vote.
Where is the pride in ciosing a company? I beleive there is more pride in trying to save one. I have been at NP over 24 yrs and would like to get a few more. You need to remember NP did not put us in this position YRC did. Im trying to save my job here, Im not interested in starting at the bottom somewhere else. I am just as aware as you that this sucks, but tell whats out there thats better. Maybe the option of merging with YRC under the same conditions we are voting for. Maybe a couple of men can on at ABF at the bottom of the list. A few might even get a non union job. NO vacation, pay part of your oun benifits, 401k if lucky. My nephew works at con way and he loses benifits, holidays, etc without a vote. I will pas an try to have some say in my future.
screwed again When you vote no and the co. closes whos going to pay that 100 percent into your pension that your talking about?Just to clarify unemployment doesnt pay into your pension or your health and welfare!! Just thought you needed a statement of fact. .
sale of any subsidiary except china operations will apply snapback clause negating all concessions.
I dont think any sales are in the immediate future.
Does anyone have the letter that was sent to us after our re-vote last year. Or remember what was said in it, about them leaving us alone for a period of time.
