As I said in another post you can’t really blame the company for squeezing everything they can out of us but rather we need to blame the union for allowing the crappy contracts and blame us the members for voting for the crappy contracts.
    Your analysis is right down the pipe...Let me use this analogy...


    When I was younger I remember watching those old nature shows where a HUGE HERD of Wildebeests is being chased by a HANDFUL of Lions...The Lions eventually take down the slowest and weakness member of the herd,while the rest of the Wildebeests escape only to run another day...When I got older,I asked myself a question...Why didn't all those Wildebeests ever TURN around and RUN at the Lions...''Trample Them''?...I now find myself constantly asking that question about another 'Species'.

    The younger members today don't have a clue what solidarity is all about. When I started at Waldbaums supermarkets it was you had to get your thirty days in and then you made the list.. Back then when you got close there were always guys that would book off to insure they had to call all the casuals so they would make the list.Highly doubt it works like that anymore...

    I took off one time so the new guy could get his benefits for the month and he never said a word to me about it. After some time had passed I asked him if he knew that I did that for him and he said yes. Nothing more just yes and that was back when we didn't get paid for a last minute call off.

    Here is the TDU version of the vote count. Easier to read.

    Get your Teamster magazine in the mail? Check out page 4. DHL gets negotiated wage increases totaling $5 per hour over five years, and negotiated increases up to $6 per hour to maintain health and pension benefits over five years. We at ABF, thanks to yes voters and non voters, and our creampuff freight committee get crumbs! Thanks.

    NEW ENGLAND TEAMSTERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT WITH ABF

    NEW ENGLAND TEAMSTERS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT WITH ABF
    Today negotiators for the New England ABF supplement reached a tentative agreement with the company. This tentative agreement comes several months after the International settled national negotiations leaving New England members’ pension and health and welfare funds in jeopardy.

    “At the finish of the national negotiations, New England ABF members were facing cuts to their pension and health and welfare benefits. But our members never faltered. They stood tall and refused to back down,” said Sean O’Brien, Teamsters Joint Council 10 Secretary-Treasurer and lead negotiator for the New England supplement. “This is a great victory for our members and sets the example for what can be done when Teamsters stand together.”

    New England Teamsters secured their continued participation in the pension and health and welfare funds at their current accrual rate. The proposed agreement transitions the company into the hybrid pension plan and ensures that members maintain their current level of benefits. The team was also able to negotiate increased of 50 cents per hour into the health and welfare funds.

    The New England Teamster leadership is recommending ratification of the settlement.

    Teamsters ABF National Contract Has Now Been Ratified

    The last supplement to the ABF NMFA has now been ratified. Consequently, the new collective bargaining agreement has been approved and will take effect. Pay increases will be retroactive to July 1 as per the new agreement.

    It is the union's understanding that the company will actually implement the new agreement on Sunday, July 29. Also, pay for week ending 7-28-2018 will be processed at the pay rate that includes the July 1, 2018 increase.

    Retro pay for weeks ending 7-7-2018, 7-14-2018 and 7-21-2018 will be paid by a separate check processed on or about 8-2-2018, and distributed with the paychecks for the week ending 7-28-2018. The ratification bonus will be processed and distributed within the next 30 days.

    ArcBest® Announces All ABF Freight® Labor Agreement Supplements Now Ratified

    The 63-month agreement covering Teamster-represented employees at ABF Freight®, ArcBest's LTL subsidiary, runs through June 30, 2023 and is retroactive to April 1, 2018. The ABF National Master Freight Agreement with the IBT was initially reached on March 28, 2018 and was ratified on May 10, 2018 along with a majority of the regional supplements.

    Major economic provisions of the Master agreement include:

    Restoration of a vacation week, which begins accruing on anniversary dates that begin on or after April 1, 2018, with the new vacation eligibility schedule being the same as the applicable 2008-2013 supplemental agreements
    Wage increases in each year of the contract, beginning July 1, 2018
    A $1,000 ratification bonus for full-time active employees and $500 for qualifying casual employees, payable within 30 days of ratification
    Contributions to multiemployer pension plans to remain at current rates for each fund
    Continuation of existing health coverage at no cost to represented employees
    Changes to purchased transportation provisions with certain protections for road drivers
    Profit-sharing bonuses upon ABF Freight's achievement of annual operating ratios of 96.0% or below for a full calendar year during the contract period

    The combined contractual wage and benefit rate, including the ratification bonus and additional vacation time, increases approximately 2% on a compounded annual basis throughout the contract period. The additional week of vacation will be expensed as it is earned for anniversary dates that begin on or after April 1, 2018. The ratification bonus will be expensed over the 63-month contract beginning April 1, 2018.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures...I work at one of the busiest terminals on the East Coast...2631 can verify that...as I've previously mentioned we've had 7 or 8 drivers retire within the past year or so...All great Teamsters and even better experienced PEDDLE Men...how can you replace that,especially in this day and age...no way...can't get drivers...ABF has been using 8 to 10 cartage drivers every day,especially now with vacations upon us...not good for all concerned...it's gotten so bad that the cartage drivers are starting to PICK and CHOOSE what they will or won't do...can you imagine?...

    So what ABF has come up with is this...within the past 2 weeks and up until the end of August...ALL NEW HIRES will receive TOP SCALE and at the same time...IMMEDIATELY GO ON THE LIST...no background checks...no 3 or 4 month wait...nothing...they absolutely knew they had to do something and this was it...Union had no problem with it because the guys now on probation at lesser pay go right to top scale and on the list as soon as they hired the first one...I believe it's some kid right out of the Military...Good for him...as you can imagine they're getting more applicants now...the other Jersey terminals have not implemented this program...not sure about the rest of the country...we'll see what happens...
