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.
