    Default Wages

    You guys at Oak Harbor have not had a raise since your contract expired 10/31/07. The new proposal asks for no raise in wages until 2013. The company has not paid into your pension for awhile and they don't want to do it now. Has anyone bought prescriptions? They cost you alot more now don't they. That is the new medical plan that OHFL threw at you. WHY IN THE HELL did we stand out there on the lines if the union is going to roll over for this. Some one please explain so that I understand.

    Prescriptions are $10. Doctor co-pays are $15.

    You don't need to tell me about the "almost the same as the Teamsters plan" crap. Last summer I had an unknown allergic reaction out in the boonies. 40 mile ride to the hospital. Blood pressure at something like 36/54. Overnight in the hospital. IIRC my part of the tab was around $1500. Hell, I had by-pass 10 years ago and only spent one-tenth of that. But "it is just as good as the Teamster plan."

    Two thoughts about the proposed contract the Union threw out. The Union is throwing us under the truck to save their own sorry asses, and at some point we get to vote on the contract. And the next Teamster election throw the useless culls out. I guess that is three, oh well.

    We were sold out in the beginning and we will surely be sold out in the end so that a few can remain in power. As my wife said in the beginning of this mess, "You guys are nothing but pawns between two kings and neither side cares about a pawn."

    That is the sorry state these leeches have put us in. But all it will take is a change in our leadership. With one quick X of the pen we can get rid of this trash and get back to being TEAMSTERS. Road Block you have held up well with all you guys have been Thur. When they get voted out will be the time that will make you say we Teamsters will win out in the end. We need to start putting their names out here for all to hear. We need a thread for the DAMNED. And put their names up for all to never vote for and to campaign against.
