    Teamsters Eye Wage Hike in ABF Talks

    This is a bit of a repeat of what was previously posted in this thread but it does mention the lawsuit. I am curious when we might hear something from some source other than what was posted on TDU (which is where JOC) got this info also.

    The largest LTL operator is non-union carrier FedEx Freight.
    Remember when rdwy owned Viking, did you ever think?

    Hoffa & co are not stupid people. They knew that they would never be able to sign another carrier to the NMFA if they gave UPSF it's own contract. They also knew that YRC was in financial trouble. Thats why ABF was forced ( or allowed ) to signed a National Freight Industry Standards Agreement.

    There are some very shrewed lawyers on the IBT's payroll. I don't ever remember hearing of the NFISA before the 2008 contract. I don't know what the reason for the name change was since it is also supposedly know as the NMFA.

    ABF Agrees to Be Bound by 2008-2013 National Freight Standards Agreement | International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT)

    January 30, 2008

    (Washington, D.C.) - ABF Freight System, Inc. has agreed to the Teamster Union's demand that the company should agree to be bound by the proposed 2008-2013 Teamsters National Freight Industry Standards, which will protect union members' futures.

    By agreeing to be bound by the proposed standards, ABF employees' health, welfare and pension benefits will be protected. Also, ABF employees' wages and working conditions will improve, as well as their job security.

    We are pleased that ABF has agreed to be bound by the 2008-2013 Teamsters National Freight Industry Standards because it will protect our members' futures, said Tyson Johnson, Director of the Teamsters National Freight Division and lead negotiator of the proposed agreement. Improving and protecting our members' wages, benefits and working conditions are our top priority. I urge all Teamster freight members to approve the tentative agreement.

    The tentative agreement, also known as the National Master Freight Agreement, provides record benefit contributions from employers that will help protect health, welfare and pension benefits.

    Ain't it funny that nothing different arrived in a ABF members mailbox when it came time to ratify the 2008 agreement. We all thought we were voting on the same contract. Little did we know......

    I would like to say that I know we have several ABF members on this site that I refer to as "quiet" members. I just want you to know your ideas and comments are very welcomed and valued and I would very much like to hear what you all have to say about the upcoming contract talks.

    Hoffa will do all the commenting for them, he only needs them to vote "yes" on the dotted line.
