Lets see.....I'm willing to bet this wage progression was voted in when you worked for Preston...why did you do that? Did you know then you would be a big investor and screw your fellow worker? You should have quit in protest when it got voted in to show solidarity with the new guys, but you didnt , did you hypocrite? Also this isn't something that happens just in teamster companies, this was also prevalent in non union (and union) jobs I have worked...So, the new hire driver doing the same job as the veteran drivers is paid 10% less. Is this a two-year training period? Is the new hire less capable?
The casual dock worker doing the same job never reaches parity with the regular dock worker. Is he a Teamster Second Class?
