We already have the 48 after 6 tours in Carolina conference. I assumed everyone did. We can’t bank days though unfortunately
In central if you run 12 tours you only pickup another 24 hours. You should gain another 48 hours . And Carolina should get back their banked days

Local 728 in Atlanta has scheduled a contract proposal meeting on Saturday November 12 at 12:00 pm. Looks like the union is starting early getting contract negotiations started. So lets get our wish lists in order, prioritize what you want, and keep it handy.........

Let's make this the best contract ever......demand a lot and get a lot.......we have sacrificed to much to get suckered again!!!

This proposal was brought to my attention by a co-worker. Payday used to be Thursday and was changed to Friday in the 2013-2018 contract. This needs to be changed back to Thursday so that there is time to correct any pay shortages before the weekend. No one should have to wait until Monday to get the money they have earned.

I submitted over 20 proposals to my BA a couple days ago....most from SOR but a few that I made myself....you have done us a great service brother, Thank You for all your hard work...now it is in the unions court to get us a good contract offer...
You are welcome brother. Hopefully, this contract will be the best one ever for us. And let me say this one more time, if you don’t like what you see on the first offer, by all means “Vote No”. If you like what you see, “Vote Yes”. Remember, what is voted in is what we have to work under until June 30, 2028. So don’t just haphazardly vote yes.
And, when you get your ballot in the mail, “VOTE” and mail it back in. If I am not mistaken, the last contract had less than 30% of the ballots returned. There is nothing more annoying than someone that does not even turn in their ballot, and then bitches and moans about what a sh*tty contract we got.

I know that union members supervise the vote count and they ride from the post office to the counting place but I have often wondered if that 30% is the real number? I know I voted but I wonder how I would find out if my envelope, the outside one, the one with my name on it, got registered? Any idea how I could check later?

That would be a good question for the Business Agent. I have always wondered why people have so little concern about something as important as their livelihood.
I mean, how hard is it to mark your ballot, put it in the unmarked envelope, then put it in the postmarked envelope and mail it back in?

I know it is still a little early for the 2023 Contract Proposals, but I figured we could use the Trucking Boards platform to post what we have or what we would like have or change. Hopefully, the OZ slate has someone that reads these boards and they will get an idea of what we would like to see changed. I will start off posting two of the thirty-five proposals that I have come up with so far

$2.00 pay to start off is not enough needs to be 3 to 4 dollars first year and a dollar every year after that.

My past experience is record your conversations with anybody you discuss your case with. I mean ANYBODY. Check you state laws. In Indiana only one of the parties to the call has to know about the recording. If you are recording, you are legal in IN without telling the other parties. Get copies of everything you sign. Yes, you might be followed & photographed by a third party hired by your employer. Be & act the Boy Scout Motto 'Be Prepared'. von.
 
When you are looking at the next contract, and the money they offer, REMEMBER! Most Drivers are going to end up with one or more Health problems! Obesity, Sleep Apnea, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Cancer, Bodily injuries and a Great Chance to Die in an Accident What's that worth to you and your Family.
