    This is why we voted no, when faced with a pay concession. Had we given in, during the negotiation stages of our division, The pay cut would have spread like wild fire to the other Union Companies.

    I would never vote for a paycut for another Teamster. Hold your ground, or move forward. Never move backwards... never...

    Yeah, as an ABF employee myself, I've been wondering the same. You know they're going to. They could even say that since they're under the same NMFA agreement that they should be able to do it at the same time. Vote NO!!! You'll never get it back.

    Never give back. Our Tm says that ABF doesn't need the concessions but will take them anyway. He also says that this will not save YRC if will only prolong the agony. And after they are gone will we get our money back? Think not

    I'm not suprised, that sounds like something a smart *** ABF TM would say. He probably is right that it won't save YRC, only prolong it. Vote no!!!!! You'll never get it back.

    What the h??? I go on vacation for a week and now this... Don't worry, I'll be back next week, so I can get laid off, and TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM! (I know I can get the old OR below 94!...why is this rope I'm pulling on now have a noose on the end?)

    (Don't get too used to this though, I have one more week to use this year!)

    Yep, long winter, uh-huh!

    As Donkey said to Shrek, "I know, I'll stick with you! We can stay up all night swappin' manly stories, and in the mornin', I'm makin' waffles!"

    If it were only that easy in this "swamp"...

    How does a TM at ABF know what was discussed at the meetings and come off with the knowledge that it isn't going to work? How can anyone, anywhere, outside the situation, know exactly what is going on?
