    Default Tyson getting involved?

    I heard from the man that Tyson Johnson, the National Freight Director, is due to arrive in Seattle on June 2-4 for the Oak Harbor negotiations. Came out in a message sent to all the locals from Al Hobart.

    That ought to shake some things up, huh? I hear Tyson is not the man to screw around with, and I hear he is not at all pleased with the way OHFL has been yanking us around and spitting in the union's eye.

    I think that unless we see some major movement by the company on those dates, we are looking at going to war...

    Good news. If Al and Tyson unite against Oak harbor you guys will get the best you can get.

    Tyson Johnson sold ALL USF Holland employees down the river on our layover pay. I hope he doesn't allow Oak Harbor to screw you guys as much as he has allowed USF Holland (YRCW influenced, I'm sure) to screw us.

    TJ wow, Hope he f#$@s you guys less then he did us NMFA guys. I don't know why you would be happy to see him, he is just the top concessioneer for the freight division. Just because guys with six figure income show up, doesn't mean they have the balls to do anything constructive..

    Dude, you have no idea.... Read their contract http://www.oakh-hr.com/documents/07o...nt_updated.pdf, fired for disloyalty? I think it's quite possible the worst union contract in all of freight. I could even understand a little if they were driving 20 year old trucks and their terminals looked like ghost towns. But they are thriving and they have state of the art electronics, new terminals, and equipment they wont open their books to the union they just expect them to take their word for it and continue to grant unheard of concession contract after contract they have had it soo easy and all they want is more.

It's hard to explain, but If I lay in a motel for more than 14 hours I would get 2 hours back to my 12th hour and then time spent. Now we get 2 hours out to the 16th hour, which is how Yellow and Roadway are. We had grievance after grievance and now they aren't even hearing them, Tyson Johnson gave it away.

    Yuck, does that contract suck. Management rights, drivers having to pay for their errors, vague discpline language, need to be a mathemetician to understand the pay rates & who gets gauranteed 40.

    Did you see the attached attendance policy? You could actually be terminated just for using your sick pay.

    I'm still kind of sifting through it. Unreal, how could the company want anything more?

    I would hate to have to pay for any of my errors, I would have had to buy a Grandfather clock a couple of years ago... As far as the gauranteed 40, that language is extremely vague.
