    Default The ducks are all lined up

    Let’s see if I got my facts straight. The reason for the conference call that was on March 18th was to show us, “concerned employees”, that ABF has a financial situation and Tyson did a wonderful job for the company to set the record straight about the pay increase for the company executives and ABF’s financial trouble. The reason for the local meetings was to find out if the ABF teamsters were for any concession talks to resume. The remark on the conference call was, “unless there is an overwhelming response from ABF teamsters for it, they will not even continue the talks”. But a funny thing happened on the way to the local meeting. Our local meeting here in Dallas was on March 27th to get our input but on March 26th, one day even before our local meeting, the company and the IBT engaged in preliminary discussions about the company’s financial needs. On April 8th, they entered the negotiations. This is April 14th and no word yet. Now on April 19th, there's the ABF two man meeting, for the purpose of providing the locals with the detailed update on the financial condition and ongoing efforts by the TNFINC to address the issues. Then on April 23rd, the conference call for the 1st quarter results will be announced. Call me paranoid but it’s so obvious to me that all the ducks line up so well to try and convince us on how bad that they need these concessions. All the meetings have been perfectly timed and are in sync.

    The dates are right on target... That meeting was set up weeks ago on that date. What a coincidence that they reached an agreement Friday and the ABF two man meeting is Monday.
