    Default Credibility gap

    Tyson Johnson said on the first so called conference call that this would be a one-time vote if we rejected it, so be it. Murry B v.p. of operations for ABF said when he was pitching the companies side of things in the Chicago area that there was no plan b if this failed to pass. He just said things would get real ugly and there would be big changes. Now both sides are hinting at future further negotiating. I think both sides lack credibility on this issue and will face an even bigger rejection of any further voting because of this dishonesty. Thats right DISHONESTY. I think the number of no voters only grows because of this, on ANY new proposals. The employees have voted, accept the results, it's the ethical thing to do.

    There is no need for any more talks between the ABF and the IBT. Just do their jobs and we will do ours. It is not hard to figure out just do your jobs. Tyson could not even get his own local to vote for his stupid half @ss plan. By the way great job 849 and please tell all my Brothers at the ABF 705 locations THANKS GREAT JOB. YOUR BROTHER ALWAYS!

    849, You mention Murray Babb says things will get ugly and big changes coming nowif that doesn't sound like a threat what is it. This is the problem they flap the jaws and then wonder why people don't see it the company way. If they would go back to running ABF the way it has been ran we would be OK. I have said for the last year that this company has been doing some real stupid stuff. Its like they had to try and do this to get the union to take notice of ABF. What they don't realize is the threats they make only turns the employees against the company instead of trying to bring them closer. We need to all let them know enough is enough lets get back to moving the freight. If the company should close its alot easier for you and I to find the $50,000.00 job than it is for them to find their $500,000.00 a year job this they should take into consideration before the threats start or continue.
