    Default Teamsters Charge Jack Cooper Transport as a Labor Law Violator

    Been a very long time since I have seen any car haul news. I'm afraid it isn't good news.

    The Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) sent the following memo to local unions today after the committee filed unfair labor practice charges against Jack Cooper Transport:

    Today, Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, managers for Jack Cooper Transport began contacting Local Unions individually by phone requesting relief from pension contributions. These benefits have been negotiated to conclusion under the current National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) and Supplemental agreements. A letter from T. Michael Riggs on this matter has also been sent by Jack Cooper Transport managers directly to our Carhaul membership in violation of law. Because this attempt to bypass the Local Union and the Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) on this matter shows the bad faith of Jack Cooper Transport managers, TNATINC has filed unfair labor practice charges.

    The TNATINC is outraged that Jack Cooper Transport would attempt to reach out to individual Local Unions and our Carhaul members to propose reductions to pension benefit contributions. Local Unions are directed by TNATINC to refuse any response to Jack Cooper Transport’s request for relief and refer any such matters to the TNATINC Co-Chairmen.

    I wonder if the above notice and the closing of the Louisville KY. terminal is just a coincidence or not ?
    This is all I can find right now.

    News on the lay-off notice for the car haulers in Louisville KY.

    Teamsters: Jack Cooper Workers at Ford Plant in Louisville Won’t Be Laid Off
    Four hundred twenty-five union workers at the Ford Truck Plant in Louisville, Ky., who were told Feb. 20 they were being laid off April 21, will not be out of work, according to a Teamsters union leader who spoke with Transport Topics.
    On Feb. 20, Jack Cooper Transport Co., a vehicle-hauling company based in Kansas City, Mo., sent a letter to the Kentucky Career Center notifying the state that it planned to “cease yard management operations” at the Louisville location.
    However, TT has learned that while Jack Cooper Transport is losing the business with Ford, another trucking company, RCS Transportation of Simpsonville, Ky., also known as Valiant Management and Holdings, has been awarded the contract and will begin operations at the Louisville yard in late April.
    “No one is getting laid off,” Teamsters Local 89 President Fred Zuckerman said in an interview with TT. “We go through this all of the time. A company will lose business and another company will take it, and everybody goes to work and that’s it.”
    Zuckerman said Jack Cooper Transport and RCS Transportation are covered under the Teamsters Union Master Contract.
