    Default Freight division update

    An update from the National freight division, April 3, 2020.

    National Freight Division Update for Friday, April 3, 2020
    We continue to find ourselves in unprecedented situations in the freight industry. Unfortunately, it appears that things are going to get worse before they get better. We have seen a few terminals this week where an employee tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. At one terminal, a lower-level supervisor tested positive and the terminal was temporarily shut down while it was disinfected. There are, however, approximately 18 members and six non-bargaining unit employees who had been in contact with that supervisor, and they have now been placed on a mandatory 14-day quarantine. That terminal has since reopened. At another location with a different company, the terminal was also temporarily closed, disinfected and affected employees similarly placed into quarantine status. In all cases, the appropriate governmental authorities were promptly contacted.

    Ok IBT, and where is the MOU for Covid-19 pay for us in freight? We're just expected to burn thru our paid time off and then tough :(:(:(:( after that? Why are we expected to just bend over and take hard lay offs when we're still reasonably busy?

    The latest freight division update, April 9.

    Update From National Freight Division Director Ernie Soehl for April 9, 2020
    It is with great sadness that I have to report that we lost a union brother to the Covid-19 virus. Tommy Hogan, a shop steward at the ABF Freight terminal in Brooklyn, New York and recording secretary for Local 707 died due to complications from Covid-19. Brother Hogan was a terrific guy and was liked by all. No words can describe how sad this is. He will truly be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to Tommy Hogan’s family and friends.

    We find ourselves in unprecedented situations in the freight industry. We have seen some terminals this week where someone has tested positive for the virus. ABF’s Brooklyn terminal was shut down, is being deep cleaned and disinfected and may reopen on Friday, April 10 if cleared by state health officials. At a YRC terminal, a lower-level supervisor tested positive and the terminal was temporarily shut down while it was disinfected. There are, however, approximately 18 members and six non-bargaining unit employees who had been in contact with that supervisor, and they have now been placed on a mandatory 14-day quarantine. That terminal has since reopened. There are other terminals that have similarly been hit by the virus. In all cases, the appropriate governmental authorities were promptly contacted.
