    Default Arkansas Best Corp. Enters Red

    If a research analyst's projections are correct, then the rest of Arkansas Best's quarters in 2010 may look like the first one - negative.

    That's even taking into account possible wage concessions of 15 percent from its work force that Judy McReynolds, president and CEO of Fort Smith-based Arkansas Best Corp., said Friday would have saved the company about $75 million in 2009.

    "The wage concessions are highly important to Arkansas Best and also ensuring the livelihood of their employees," said Jack Waldo, Stephens Inc. research analyst. "If that comes through, it'll set the foundation for them to return to profitability. We expect that to happen sometime in 2011. They have an outside shot, but our model doesn't have them in the black until then."

    The company is trying their best to convince us that they are hurting. It's just a coincidence that people were questioning of ABC's financial situation and now this pops up. Imagine that! ABC enters the red and their stock goes up 54 cents.I think that i'm missing something here.Ah, I know, it's gullibility!

    "The pressures on the trucking industry are serious and only the strong will survive. Ironically, this is of benefit to companies like Arkansas Best. Its balance sheet ensures a bright future as it will live to capitalize on the misery of others. Concurrently, the ambitions of companies like UPS and FedEx should drive further consolidation. Furthermore, stabilizing freight volumes should help pricing.

    All roads lead to Arkansas Best.

    Now, I wonder if that could possibly mean us too!

    We know that ABF is not in bad shape!

    Great post my Brothers. We just had our Locale 407 monthly meeting. At that meeting I brought before the membership the facts of the two man meeting. And it was said by the President Frank Burdell and The ABF BA Mike Hietion that there was never a motion brought too the floor on the matter of the contents of the concession package. In other words the statement on the IBT Freight update and the web page was and is a LIE. It was never voted on. Later today there should be proof for all of you Brothers and Sisters to take to the members at your Terminals that will prove we are being wronged. Teamster has said he will allow something that only I have and you will see it first and only on this site. YOUR BROTHER ALWAYS!

    We just had a situation questioning if a manager was drunk on duty. Supposedly they had a meetng and he got reprimanded. Retaliation appears to have been taken. A dock guy/driver got sent for a test and failed.
    6 weeks off unpaid for the dock/driver and whatever else mandatory rehab stuff goes with it. Business as usual for the manager. Great for morale. Morale is low as usual lately. Way to get the numbers up!
