    bravo, here is a woman with twice the ba**s of most of the men that work at abf. she identifies herself to wes kemp, and makes negative comments about chicagoland terminals and she gives specifics to make her point. thank you chicago osd lady. i wonder how this makes all the anonymous posters feel on this site and the fence sitting lurkeres who read but won't ever post because somebody might know who you are. maybe she can inspire some to come off the fence and grow a set.
    thanks again osd lady

    I sent an email to askwes, and got the reply from The Frozen Chicken Man. I doubt of Wes even saw the email.

    IMO-A great letter!!!It depicts the actual view from an ABF employee for once! All that we have been hearing from in the last couple of weeks is the company's views and that coming from both sides.It was refreshing to hear some of our points of view being represented on paper with such heart and emotion! Here is a person that stands up in what they believe in and surely not afraid to express it!

    I read that letter a couple weeks ago and was just as impressed as you all are. It comes from her heart. She told Wes just like it is. I hope Tyson See's this letter. maybe just maybe he will lose a couple winks of sleep.

    I do know this lady and I ask her if I can post her e-mail at the terminals here, She told me go ahead and let everybody read it. She called me the other day and told me that she was catching alot of heat from the TM at Bedford, but she told him straight out that is the way she feels, and she said that she's sorry if that offends anybody at Wheeling Terminal but would rather cut needless spending than lower our wage.

    We all know that this poor lady is going to go thru living hell from the terminal manager. I stiil believe that living in america we still are suppose to have freedom of speech is exactly which she is expressing. It is really great to see her exercising her right and if only more people would be like her. We all know of people that talk the talk but are afraid to walk the walk. My hats offf to this lady well said and Thank you for beliefs and standing up in these trying times for not only ABF people, but for all teamsters alike.

    From the opening of the letter, it sounds like views/opinions/questions were solicited for.
    If that's the way ABF presented it, then any member of management who wishes to retaliate should have nothing less than harassment/hostile work environment charges brought against them. It should be easy to prove that if you've been filing for 10 years, and now you're filing, emptying garbage cans, scrubbing toilets, and washing the TM's car, that something fishy is going on.

    DON'T ASK FOR WHAT YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR!!!!

    It's becoming increasingly clear that employees are getting fed up with this kind of treatment, and finally more and more people are saying "put me out of my misery, or leave me alone."

    Bully for her! She told it like it was. There is a list of wasteful practices in every company. ABF should look to eliminate that first then re-evaluate the situation before hacking away at wages form labor. This is something that should have been addressed when ABF approached the International regarding wage concessions. In other words....Show us where you have made an effort to conserve and eliminate wastefull practices. Bringing new equipment on line during these times doesn't say much for conservation now does it?

    A question that was asked of the Mucky Mucks from YRC when they were selling us the economic relief package was...."Did all of you fly to Salt Lake first class or coach?" It looked like they were going to chew their faces off.
