    We will win this battle, too... of this I have no doubt. The company is throwing everything up against the wall in vain and futile attempt to see what will stick. The only thing that will be sticking very soon is the government's boot as it is shoved WAY up the VP's rear-end, once the fall-out from the ULP's are investigated and ruled on.

    Keep the faith, brothers!

    Some of the bull sh** going around, I was talking to a buddy of mine who works at Macys warehouse and he was telling me that he heard that the guys were fired from Oak Harbor for tampering with trucks (brake lines etc.).
    I told him I had never heard such a thing and no Teamster in their right mind would ever stoop that low. I stood up for the Oak Harbor drivers, I really don't believe that could have happened. Just an ugly rumor.

    Hey Fullon and other wrongly termed brothers at Oak Harbor,
    I know where your coming from. I was fired soon after the Waste strike. They took a different approach. They changed the rules on violations that were in different classifications and made them grounds for dismissal. I am in the 3rd month off waiting for my arbitration to go through. I hope that we both prevail. Best of luck to you.

    Some were fired for calling a scab a scab, some were fired for pointing out Ed's pleasure palace on his boat. One was fired for putting skunk piss on a trailer.

    What is the status of these brothers now? Did they ever get back to work?

    No I don't think any of them did. I know for sure 3 in Auburn were not brought back but I am not sure about Portland. The NLRB is still looking into it. I was actually contacted regarding one of the 3 and they asked questions about certain times during the strike. Apparently one of them were accused of physically assulting a scab at a local sports bar.
