I asked on the conway board. No one answered. Probably don't know.
Don't these things expire after 6 months ?
We have yet to see any validation to the union discussion. Just go to a meeting. Going to a meeting isn't sending a message to anyone. Not one time has the teamsters been out front passing literature. Nothing. Just some talk by a bunch of drivers that would lie to you about what they ate for breakfast. For all I know, they want me to sign that card and give it to them so they can run it up to the front office and show the TM.
How long will they stay interested ? And if these things start to expire won't they have to redo what little they have done. Run around begging people to sign more cards ? Just curious.
Found it. 6 months. And a shload of rules.
To obtain an NLRB-conducted election, the union must file a petition supported by a showing of interest from at least thirty percent of the employees in the group that the union seeks to represent, typically called the bargaining unit. Unions typically use authorization cards, individual forms in which a worker states that he or she wishes to be represented by the union, as evidence of employee support. A card or petition that simply states that the signer wanted an election would not be valid. Similarly if an employee signed the card because the union had told him that the only reason to sign the card was to have an election, the Board will not count that card. The cards must be signed and dated within six months of when the union files its petition to be valid; if a worker subsequently signs a card for another union the NLRB will not count the card in support of either union.
The Board also treats cards as invalid if they were obtained with illegal assistance from the employer: for example, if the employer gave the petitioning union access to its facility that it did not permit other unions or other organizations to have, or if it made threats or promises that coerced employees into signing these cards. Cards collected with the help of low level supervisors may also be “tainted”, even if the employer is opposed to the union, depending on what the supervisor said or did and the nature of the employer’s response. Some union promises, such as a promise to waive union initiation fees for employees who sign a card before a certain date, may also make an authorization card invalid.

Ya, those USF guys really love the union!!! Well, not the laid off ones. And not the ones that didn't get a paycut till the Teamsters came a calling!Originally Posted by teamster elvis
I signed my card in 1997. Been there done that. I am in a non union job for a reason.
You can't promise that. There is nothing saying all of those won't go down. Tell me all about how YRC makes more than us an hour. And I will remind you that after they give back 15% we make a considerable amount more.
