    I am one of the 6, I want to thank all of my teamster brothers and sisters. The Union has treated me like a human being. My employer treats me like just a number. Shows me where compassion is. With real friends. Thank You Fullonteamster

    I can say that they twisted things I did say.

    I did no distruction of company property. I was falsley accused of it.

    I made no threats of violence towards any picket line crossers. But I was threaten by TEAMSTERHATER on youtube " Gibson I should have run over you when I had the chance" AND by Joe V. Mtv Terminal " You better watch out if I have this uniform off"

    I did no physical harm to anyone.

    I was never contacted by the company or law enforcement and arrested or ticketed for anything illegal.

    They just don't like being call back stabbing ********, given the finger, and the like. Oh there was the little indescetion one of the owners had with a woman. I guess they didnt like me pointing out the truth.

    I will fight until I am returned to my possition.

    Good luck Fullon, were all the fired members from the Auburn line? I will be donating a small amount today to support those of you that were so callously dismissed. F Oak Harbor!, I hope the reinstated members are doing their part by observing "a fair days work for a fair days pay" and never going above and beyond, even for a second, until they reinstate all members and agree to a fair contract, that includes pension increases, and at least maintains current wages and benefits. Good luck to you and your families!

    I hope you have a good lawyer the union is paying for. The company is now writing up and suspending returning teamsters for the smallest of infractions. Don't know how you can get any closer to harassment. They only half trained on the new hand helds and are know writing warning letters for not doing it right. Maybe they think they can replace the teamsters one at a time. They might have forgot that half of the work force is still on lay off so they have to go thru alot of us before they are done.

    I just heard from 1 one the original suspended 13 that they are still not back to work. So even if you were not terminated (as 6 were) the other 7 are still under investigation before they can return to work. What is up with that? We returned to work unconditionally but it seems like the company has all kinds of conditions. All of us or none of us! We can not leave our brothers behind. The army was the first one to teach me this.
