    Are they going to profile and punish different terminals due to this.

    No, IMO, they just now know which terminals that they can push around and treat like crap and get away with it. If ever a company finds that a scare tactic works, you can bet that they will use that card every chance they get!

    I would have to disagree. Some areas voted as they did because of the local economy. But the difference is that we still have a decent contract that both the company and you & I work under. If you let them get away with beating you up then shame on you.

    Kgee...I'm not saying why certain areas voted yes, it's probably different in each case.I do know that the company will take advantage where and when they can if they know that they have a chance to get away with it. One instance of this is ABF wanted their distribution center in Charlotte back in 95 but their local wouldn't give into their demands so the distribution center was placed in Winston instead.The outcome is that ABF usually gets their way.Just ask the local 391 ABF Teamsters and you will find out of all what has happened there in the past and still is by what i'm still hearing.That local,IMO, is the weakest that I have seen.I can give you many instances of what happened there over the years but the outcome is what you have there today,a weak local! You say "But the difference is that we still have a decent contract that both the company and you & I work under. If you let them get away with beating you up then shame on you." Just imagine when you file a grievance and expect to win it hands down because it clearly states it in the contract but come to find out that it was lost or wasn't even filed by the BA because a deal was made.Trust me,it's not "shame on you"!
    The only way that you would understand this is actually being in that local for a little while.I have been in three locals so far in my time and as far as enforcing the contract, two of them are strong locals. Don't just go by my word though, ask some of local 391 members.
