    I hope that all those eligible, exercise their OBLIGATION and vote. Regardless of the outcome. Rejection or
    ratification should be by the majority of ABF Teamsters, not just a majority of returned ballots.

    First off... you're no brother of mine... you're a sleazeball!

    And why wouldn't you trust him... you did in 2010 and 2013... so why wouldn't you again this time...

    After all... once a sucker... always a sucker... right?

    You mean my sissy brother rollin... you know... the weakling of the bunch who wouldn't be nowhere to be found if there was a fight coming around. You talk about retirees benefiting from you... that's a joke in itself. Just remember this when you talk about appreciation... you are just giving away what so many fought and sacrificed so much for.

    But then again... you're proud of that fact... aren't you?

    I see you didn’t waste any of your retirement money on literature such as “How to Win Friends and Influence People”! :hilarious:

    B.B. King - Why I Sing the Blues. 1966

    Everybody wants to know
    Why I sing the blues
    Yes, I say everybody wanna know
    Why I sing the blues
    Well, I've been around a long time
    I really have paid my dues

    When I first got the blues
    They brought me over on a ship
    Men were standing over me
    And a lot more with a whip
    And everybody wanna know
    Why I sing the blues
    Well, I've been around a long time
    Mm, I've really paid my dues

    I've laid in a ghetto flat
    Cold and numb
    I heard the rats tell the bedbugs
    To give the roaches some
    Everybody wanna know
    Why I'm singing the blues
    Yes, I've been around a long time
    People, I've paid my dues

    I stood in line
    Down at the County Hall
    I heard a man say, "We're gonna build
    Some new apartments for y'all"
    And everybody wanna know
    Yes, they wanna know
    Why I'm singing the blues
    Yes, I've been around a long, long time
    Yes, I've really, really paid my dues

    Now I'm gonna play Lucille.

    My kid's gonna grow up
    Gonna grow up to be a fool
    'Cause they ain't got no more room
    No more room for him in school
    And everybody wanna know
    Everybody wanna know
    Why I'm singing the blues
    I say I've been around a long time
    Yes, I've really paid some dues

    Yeah, you know the company told me
    Guess you're born to lose
    Everybody around me, people
    It seems like everybody got the blues
    But I had 'em a long time
    I've really, really paid my dues
    You know I ain't ashamed of it, people
    I just love to sing my blues
    I just love to sing my blues

    I walk through the cities, people
    On my bare feet
    I had a fill of catfish and chitterlings
    Up and down Beal Street
    You know I'm singing the blues
    Yes, I really
    I just have to sing my blues
    I've been around a long time
    People, I've really, really paid my dues

    Now Father Time is catching up with me
    Gone is my youth
    I look in the mirror everyday
    And let it tell me the truth
    I'm singing the blues
    Mm, I just have to sing the blues
    I've been around a long time
    Yes, yes, I've really paid some dues

    Yeah, they told me everything
    Would be better out in the country
    Everything was fine
    I caught me a bus uptown, baby
    And every people, all the people
    Got the same trouble as mine
    I got the blues, huh huh
    I say I've been around a long time
    I've really paid some dues

    One more time, fellows!

    Blind man on the corner
    Begging for a dime
    The rollers come and caught him
    And throw him in the jail for a crime
    I got the blues
    Mm, I'm singing my blues
    I've been around a long time
    Mm, I've really paid some dues

    Can we do just one more?
    Can we do just one more?

    Oh I thought I'd go down to the welfare
    To get myself some grits and stuff
    But a lady stand up and she said
    "You haven't been around long enough"
    That's why I got the blues
    Mm, the blues
    I say, I've been around a long time
    I've really, really paid my dues

    Fellows, tell them one more time.

    Ha, ha, ha. That's all right, fellows.
    Yeah!

    Well... if it's not the lily-livered one post wonder of Old School. What happened... little wuss find himself in over his head and just ran away? I'm surprised your pansy ass isn't pushing for a yes vote too.

    How's that for winning over little sissy boys and influencing lowlifes?

    He means that he’s not having to give up the fawning approval of his TM, and that they will .....allow......him to work every day of the week,.....like a dog, if necessary.......

    Anything......even a concessionary contract that wrecks his future pension.......is better than going back to Con-Way/XPO......

    So grateful to finally have a job that treats him semi-humanly......

    And how about trying to stand up and be a man for once in your life and finish what you start this time instead of just making a cowardly smart ass remark and run off again. C'mon... you felt the need to make a remark so by all means... let's take care of this.

    If your lily-livered... sissy ass does decide to grow a pair this time... I'll be waiting for you in the "Get it off your chest thread".

    I know you would never be able to grasp this quote Teamsters Local 89 wrote but what the hell... I'll post it anyway...

    So... at least try to refrain from using "we" in your posts because you are in no way... shape or form considered a Teamster! After all... you don't have a clue what solidarity and being committed is all about!!! IMO... you are nothing but a dues paying scab that would cross a picket line in a heartbeat if given the opportunity. I'll never understand why you came to ABF in the first place... after all... why pay dues when you are willing to settle for a few crumbs anyway... you can get that for free at any company. But then again... those of us that know you on here already know that you're not too bright.

    1. A massive wildcat strike is mandatory. 2. Docker & Muler are placed on the negotiating committee. 3. All other negotiators are dismissed. 4. Not one piece of freight leaves or enters the gates. 5. A enforcement detail must & will be formed to support each terminal. 6. Local area enforcement commanders duties shall & will include making sure the enforcement detail is locked & loaded. 7. With what, is the commanders choice. 8. Each terminal shall & will be supplied with 20 pound bags of spuds to be inserted in to the intake & exhaust ports of all tractors & Yard Jockeys. 8. That is all. von.

    Again another hater tying to sound concerned. If he has followed our votes in the past he would know we abf Teamsters vote. But what would he know. Keep your eye on
    the road HMMMM.
