    Who says that every retired teamster has to follow the liberal line,I must have missed the memo.
    Nothing worse than someone promoting and expecting a person to adhere to a view that doesnít agree with them.
    I prefer to make my own judgements,not be lock step with anyone,or any group because I was a member.
    When the Teamsters becomes a perfect entity I will take their thoughts more to heart.

    Interesting how some posts smack of what appears to be jealousy. Particular language in a CBA that allowed for Union business is condemned? Anecdotes as to workers behavior and production are gospel? The loss of progressive discipline is now (political) a "liberal" thing?

There are many of them in government jobs.. I knew a few that worked West Point.. My neighbor worked for 25 years in a government agency and she has told me they had plenty.. The liberal press came out with an Oh my God moment on this issue and everyone followed suit..
    And as your working time as a Teamster you never worked with a slacker?

    I did what I had to do while working,and yes I worked for my pay.
    If your looking for a follower of the teamsters gospel,itís not me.
    I make my own judgements,donít need the teamsters to dictate,what is right or wrong

    Sorry you took it the way you described. I didn't mean you specifically, but others came to mind instantly.
    As for all the issues dealing with the problems in this country ... again you are correct. Problem is we already knew all republicans are anti labor, anti union. They will never help us ( the working class ) in any way, shape or form.
    So that leaves other issues that apparently Trump inserted into his platform speeches that swayed your vote.
    Immigration ...
    The Wall ...
    Healthcare ...
    Climate change hoax ...
    Trade deals ...

    That is but a few, of which not many have been accomplished. Why ... because his lies and deciet get in the way.

    On day one

    Sometimes to have to stop listening to the right wing conservative media. Propaganda is not good for the soul.

    And what about the people that were falsely accused of wrong doing and the union helped them though a process that provided fairness to the process.
    If public sector unions are decimated, will they have the same protections ?
    No ... I doubt it.
    Slackers ( liars and cheats ) come in all shapes and forms. Union and non-union.
    But without protections, only the boss man gets to say who works, who doesn't.

    Or as you say ... they both do that.
    I put down issues directly attributed to Trump campaign rhetoric.
    What has he done except ram down out throats a tax plan that throws the country deeper into debt while enriching corporate American by TRILLIONS.
    ( and his own business empire too )
