    Default All ABF Contract Negotiation News

    November 26, 2012: On November 29 officers from freight locals will meet in Kansas City to review the contract proposals that the International union will present to ABF.

    ABF Teamsters have every reason to be concerned.

    Earlier this fall, the IBT mailed contract surveys to ABF employees. The survey results have not been revealed to members or local unions, but the survey itself was worrisome. Some of the questions were fine, but others looked like they were prepared by management, asking which concession we would like to give to the company

    IBT Gives ABF Concessions in the West

    Any of you ABFers know about this?

    November 28, 2012: On the eve of bargaining with ABF, the International Union has given the company a 65˘ per hour concession in the 13 western states. Members were not consulted, and most are still unaware of the giveback.

    The concession was quietly implemented on August 1, by prior arrangement between ABF and the Hoffa administration. On that date, ABF was required by the contract to increase pension and health and welfare payments by $1 per hour. In the west, the allocation was 35˘ to H&W and 65˘ to pension, but the Western Conference of Teamsters Pension Fund has not received any of the 65˘.

    Leaders From ABF Local Unions Unanimously Approve Contract Proposals
    Leaders from about 160 Teamster local unions met today in
    Kansas City, Missouri and unanimously approved the union’s
    initial contract proposals that it will exchange with ABF on
    December 18 when negotiations begin.

    “Our local unions were instrumental in providing us with their
    members’ input today in addition to the bargaining surveys that
    members returned to us,” said Gordon Sweeton, Co-Chairman
    of the National ABF Negotiating Committee for the Teamsters
    National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee (TNFINC).

    It's pretty funny that the union halls are being so hush hush. Any pay or health givebacks will be rejected as far as I'm concerned

    When the company asked for and sought the last concessions the locals were telling all of the ABF employees that this was what was needed to make them propfitable. The concessions were turned down and the company seemed to have money to give the executives bonuses and seemed to have money to buy Panter along with other things. I for one will again vote no but I also thought that the last concession vote was too close to give the concessions and I think alot of people will vote for the concessions even if it is to give away the farm.
