Im going to be honest, when I first started at ABF I was skeptical about the union. It is my first union job and at first I had mixed emotions about it and some bad experiences. You can do this but you can’t do that sort of thing and stuff like that pertaining to talking to anyone in management and just overall how things work at a union company such as ABF. But let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made. After some time the union grew on me and I will never go back go working for a non union carrier again. Drivers from other companies like to talk bad about us union guys but we got guys who have come from every other non union LTL carrier and they love it here at ABF. I know at first it’s hard you gotta put your time in and what not and work on call and weird hours but it’s one of the best jobs in the industry you can get hands down. I think after the next contract coming up ABF will be the top LTL carrier to work for just my opinion.
