    Default Hoffa and ABF

    "I understand that economic times are tough," said Hoffa, the son of Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared in 1975. "But we do not have to accept woefully inadequate contracts that slash our wages, provide substandard working conditions and outsource our jobs, especially from a company that recently gave out millions of dollars in bonuses to its corporate executives."

    I have been told that this is proactive. The ABF wage cut that is. If something is not done now, then you will be just like us, YRCW in the near future.

    Election time is coming, we talked about this on the phone yesterday. I was thinking of contacting the opposing party and throwing my hat in the ring. You coming with me too, Muler. I'll call you monday, or you can call me after 9 to-nite.

    I would really like to see changes. I would like to be in charge of the freight division so Teamsters could see what can really be done when someone that cares is in charge. I hope Pat does run against them. I would see to it that 407 Teamsters were on board. Oh by the way Teamster the guy giving our BEG BACK speech. Said that we are not close to what YRC is experiencing. He said they just don't want to have to borrow any money. Because they don't ever want any Banker telling them what to do. He said they are no where near broke. It is just a move to put more profits in their pockets.

    Where did you get your info Teamster? Have you been talking to our freight director again? You must understand that he is a little punchy from the battles with YRCW and is under the assumption that all carriers manage the same way YRCW does. How could he think otherwise. T.J. has witnessed some of the biggest blunders in trucking history. All this came about due to the massive ego of Bill Z.....Who I really owe a debt of gratitude to. I for one am thankful to have been given the life changing experiences to date. I am also looking forward to experiencing some more. Thanks again Bill Z. for all you do.

    If ABF were to change the way they have done business in the past (actually make money)....Then they too would be in the same boat as YRCW. They have done an impressive job of weathering this economic storm compared to YRCW who pays nothing into the pension and has the benefits of a 15% wage reduction, yet continues to leak like a sieve. Yep, ABF did it all paying full wages and benefits, spending like drunken sailors, buying new equipment, etc. Now they need a little help?

    Well, if ABF takes a page out of the Bill Z. handbook on how to ruin some of the finest ltl companies around....They might just pull it off and have their employees digging deep to help their sorry butt's out of a jam. The employees should not be punished for the greed and stupidity of the executives from their company. It is high time the board pays for some of these bone headed maneuvers from the CEO on down. Let them take it on the chin for once.
