How come Old Dominion never has problems with the Teamsters? I was just wondering.
Wow, that is about all a common-sense explanation a guy would have to see. Great story and I'm sure all of it true as I am breathing God's air. What is wrong with making a decent living with work rules that junior guys can't mess with? I was on the bottom of the board for years, and I don't regret the union one bit. Union dues? How many of you non-union guys know exactly what our dues are per month? I bet you don't have a clue, but of course your supers told you you so you must believe them right? Ha! Just think about every time you have a junior guy take your run, or go home for 3 hrs, then come back for 2 more cause that's all the work they have for ya.

Stark, I would also help any driver union or non. We need to stick together instead of all this dang fighting. Look south my friends. They are coming for your job and don't care if you are union or non.
Great thinking Starkraven....You said so well, what a very good respectful post. Let's all learn from this ok?
That is pretty much right, but remember the working man is indeed the one who gets screwed in the end of it all. I am a proud member of local 554 in Nebraska.
After 32 years of being an OTR driver and local driver the last 11 years with FXF I don't want anything to do with your wonderfull union. From what I have seen most of you union members can't make up your own mind with out asking somebody first.And how many of you teamsters voted for Obama?
